Having your own herb garden and using it in your delicious dishes is the best thing to experience. Almost all herbs can co-exist and some herbs can be plant together in just one pot or into the herb garden for full healthy harvest in no time.
Growing herbs together will save water, tastes better and will give you the best results when they have similar sun, soil and water preferences.
Herbs That Grow Together:
While growing herbs together, use a pot that is 12 inches in diameter and pair plants that have a similar requirement of sun, water, soil. Herbs in one pot look pretty and keep your plants small.
