Herbs for your planters

 If you like to cook with herbs but do not have much space, you can still grow them using wooden planters. Their beautiful foliage makes a pleasing alternative to summer flowers and their scented leaves have a sensory impact.
The best herbs for planters  are those you  use regularly but in small amounts; when You want  large handfuls  of parsley  for a fish sauce  or basil to make pesto, it is better to buy a bunch  than to strip the leaves  from an entire  Plant.
As a rule, herbs look best in traditional wooden garden planters  that will add to the tranquil  feeling that herbs give to an area. Make  sure the planter  has lots of drainage holes before you start to plant it and position it near a sunny seat if you want to enjoy  the fragrance.

Herbs for your planters

Before you plant up your planters, consider  the shape  of the plant and the colour  and texture  of its leaves. Most culinary  herbs have  variegated forms, or varieties  with leaves in gold, silver-grey,  blue, purple or cream as well as green. It is easy to find herbs that look beautiful  and still retain
all their flavour.Tall herbs, such as angelica,  fennel and lovage, make an impressive  display planted one or two to a planter and placed where they  can make a bold statement. They need a planter large enough  to balance  their height, and heavy enough  to remain  stable in windy weather.
Some shrubby  herbs, such as rosemary and bay, make sizable plants and can be trained into pyramids,  balls or informal half-standards.  Once established,  they will not need to be re-potted for several  years.
