Herb Planters

Choosing the right herb planters will not only keep your plants healthy, it'll make the most out of a small amount of space.

Choosing an Herb Garden Container

Although you can't fit in a big quantity of herbs, you do have a range of options.

Many different types of containers can be used for growing herbs -- terra cotta, plastic, even self-watering pots. You can use a wooden box or basket, if you like. Just use it as a cachepot -- a decorative container used for covering up a plain pot.

Self-Watering Planter

Made of strong, UV-resistant plastic, this Windowsill Self-Watering Planter features a reservoir that draws water up just when your herbs need it.

Measures 16" W x 6" D x 7" H -- just big enough to keep some of your favorite herbs at hand, yet small enough to fit on your windowsill.

Tea Cup Planter

Beautiful and practical, the Garden Butterfly Teacup Planter is just the pick-me-up your herb plant needs.

This pretty planter features a drainage hole for healthy root growth. The matching saucer catches drips to protect your furniture.

Self-watering planter has built-in reservoir to automatically water your herb garden for you.

You'll add instant sophistication while keeping your culinary herbs neatly contained in this sleek-and-chic garden.

Location, location, location

Kitchen windows usually offer enough sunlight to keep your plants thriving.

Windowsills provide space with direct light. If that's not an option, grow your herbs in a sunroom or other sundrenched area in your home.

Choose a spot that has the right kind of light for herbs, away from heat/AC vents.

Grouping Herbs

Whether you're growing three pots of basil or a variety of herbs, they tend to look best when grouped together.

You'll create continuity by putting different types of herbs in the same type of container when you're displaying them together.
