One of the most popular herb gardening tips I have heard is to use herb flower pots. This is especially true if you are starting out with small herb gardens and would like something that is easier to maintain than larger potted plants. Herb plants really can grow quite well in pots, even ones that are only seven or eight inches in diameter.
In addition to the space you will save by having smaller containers, herb garden planters will give you a more attractive display. Small pots will also give you many different types of plants to spice up your meals and make a more manageable green area for your kitchen, dining room, or garden area. Seven small pots filled with your favorite herbs will become instant planters with which you can share. Small pots come in all sorts of sizes and shapes.
One of the most common problems people have when growing herbs is not knowing how much water to use, whether the soil is dry or rich and whether the herbs will thrive or die because of too much, too little or the wrong type of sunlight. With a small planter or hanging basket you have many options. You can have water containers, with removable glass tops, that you fill with water one plant at a time and then have the water drip from one side of the container into another. You can have a large hanging planter, (no water container) with an adjustable hoop on top and a smaller planter or hanging basket for fewer plants. You can also have cool hanging herb garden ideas that are made from mesh netting, which allows the herbs to hang upside down in cool weather.
Other herb garden planters are used for growing herbs indoors. One of the coolest ways to grow multiple herbs inside is to have several pots in several different sizes and then put them in one large pot. You can grow your favorite herbs inside a small pot and still have plenty for entertaining. In addition to using small pots, you can use big pots, such as those with larger holes in them, to grow several small plants. For growing multiple herbs indoors, it’s best to have pots that are the same size and shape.
Herbs are great to have as part of an indoor garden because they can be used year-round, regardless of what outside weather may be like. Some herbs, such as Rosemary, will grow better if you water them before hand and dry them out often. For other plants, such as chives, it’s important to keep them fairly dry. You don’t want the roots to become wilt or mushy. When growing them indoors, it’s also important to provide some sort of structure for the plants so that they do not get damaged. This could be as simple as overlapping pots or building a trellis system with the taller plants on the bottom and the shorter ones on the top.
It’s also beneficial to have more than one planter. There are lots of great choices available for planters. Most of them are made from materials such as glass or plastic. However, there are also planters that are made from wood, which look more natural and can be more attractive as well. You should be able to find many beautiful hanging planters that can hold many different types of herbs.
Another great option for an interior pot planter is a plastic pot planter. These pots can be made by any company, including companies that specialize in herbal gardening supplies. They come in all sorts of shapes, colors, and materials. You might also be able to find a really unique planter that is made from pure bamboo. Bamboo planters make a beautiful addition to any herb garden, and they are completely organic.
Other cool hanging herb garden ideas include window boxes. They can easily be moved, so you won’t have to worry about them getting knocked over if you move. They make a great addition to your kitchen because you can use them for growing herbs all year long!
