Kale, Flowers & Herbs Container Garden

Tags: , , , ,

This Kale, Flowers & Herbs Container Garden is so pretty you may not want to disturb it by harvesting—but you should! Use the kale, oregano, and sage together in a savory soup or stew, or save the oregano for your tomato sauce, the sage for some killer stuffing, and the kale for everything from chips to smoothies. Feel free to substitute other flowers for the dianthus and dusty miller, though these two do look exquisite in this grouping. Pick the kale and herbs regularly to keep plant size in check. A whiskey barrel is an ideal container for this design, or use a large metal tub or other 24-inch (or larger) container, making sure it has good drainage.

For excellent results, fill the container with premium quality potting mix, such as Miracle-Gro® Potting Mix, which is the ideal weight and texture for container growing. Feed plants regularly with Miracle-Gro® Pour & Feed® Singles to ensure they get all the nutrition they need.
