Container herb care

Herbs in containers should get at least 5 to 6 hours of sun per day as this will stimulate taste, health and resistance to pests and disease. Container herbs also require more water than their peers in in the garden as pots drain more readily and lose moisture quickly. Regular picking stimulates new growth and serves as a form of ‘pruning’.

Happy herb gardening
