Growing Herbs in Containers 

Herb gardening in containers enjoys a long history. Early records show that the ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians grew bay, myrtle and other herbs in clay pots.

Today, container gardening is once more in the throes of a renaissance. For some, this is due to the limitations of space in high-rises and condominiums; for others, it may be due to the ease and accessibility of gardening in containers. Ultimately, people simply appreciate what has been known since antiquity: Pots overflowing with plants add beauty and dimension to the landscape.

Best of all, container gardening is an ideal way to easily grow all the herbs you might want for cooking.
