How To Plant A Herb Pot
Strawberry planters are tall containers with holes around the sides that feature protruding cups to support the plants.
They’re ideal for a selection of culinary herbs, as trailing varieties can be planted in the side holes and plants with a more compact habit can be grown in the top of the pot.
But while these tall planters make growing and harvesting herbs easy, water can be distributed unevenly, resulting in some plants drying out and others becoming waterlogged.
To keep herbs in a strawberry pot well hydrated, simply include a central core of fine gravel at planting time to help improve drainage.
What you need
- Strawberry pot
- PVC pipe or cardboard tube
- Vegetable and herb potting mix
- Assorted herbs
- Gravel or small stones
- Liquid seaweed solution
Trailing varieties like oregano and thyme are great for tiered herb pots
