Potted Herb Garden Ideas

Herbs in Pots

I have a thing for growing herbs in containers.

Pots are easy. Containers can be placed right outside the kitchen door, on the deck or balcony. You don’t need a lot of room for a container and with a large enough pot you can grow several herbs at once!

Let’s take a look at these great container herb garden ideas from the blogosphere-

Upside down hanging herb garden from Persephone Magazine.

And then there is this one with bricks and terra cotta pot from HGTV.

And our portable ladder garden.

My messy patio…but I don’t have to make a trip to the garden for fresh herbs!

Terraced pots of herbs from Apartment Therapy.

Or how about this old washtub full of herbs from A Dash of Humble Pie?

And finally this hanging garden from RaveandReview.

Hopefully you have a few more ideas for your container herb garden!

I bought some large glazed strawberry pots from a regional retailer and planted a variety of herbs in the “compartments”. The green of the herbs combined with the colors of the pots makes an incredible addition to my deck and kitchen.

I have potted herbs placed in a vintage wooden toolbox I bought specifically for holding herbs or flowers. :)

I’ll bet it’s really cute! We use a lot of old ‘stuff’ for planters, I just love it.http://www.growingherbsforbeginners.com/wp-admin/edit-comments.php#comments-form
