Growing herbs in pots

Growing herbs in containers

Grow your own supply of culinary herbs in containers, whatever your conditions.

Fresh herbs add depth and flavour to cooked dishes and salads, but those little packets of cut leaves are expensive to buy. For much the same money you can buy a whole plant or some seeds instead. Grow your own herbs at home and you can have fistfuls of fragrant flavour for your cooking every day if you want.

Herbs need very little to thrive and grow well in containers. There are herbs to suit every spot, from a sun-baked courtyard or shady balcony, to the kitchen windowsill. We’ve put together three herb container combinations so you can fill any corner with fabulous flavour.
