Relax with a mug of hot tea brewed from freshly picked herbs grown in your very own container garden. Place it near your kitchen door and you can literally harvest tea ingredients while the water boils. (How’s that for fresh?!) All you need are four containers (sizes indicate pot diameters): one 24”, two 18”, and one 14”. Just follow the planting plan below, and don’t hesitate to mix things up a bit if you prefer, say, one kind of mint over the others. Also, be sure to plant mint in smaller pots before adding them to the larger containers, as mint loves to spread and could easily take over the whole pot.
For excellent results, fill containers with premium quality potting mix, such as Miracle-Gro® Performance Organics® All Purpose Container Mix—it’s the ideal weight and texture for container growing—and feed plants regularly with Miracle-Gro® Performance Organics® Edibles Plant Nutrition to ensure they get all the nutrition they need. To bring you closer to harvest time, be sure to plant strong young herbs from Bonnie Plants®, a company with over 100 years’ experience helping home gardeners find success.
