Selecting The Correct Container For Your Medicinal Plants

January 29, 2022

While many people wish to grow fresh herbs at home, not everyone has a yard or space for an outdoor herb garden. The good news is that container gardening makes growing herbs at home easy, even when you have a small space.

Container planting is convenient and can give your kitchen windowsill, patio, or balcony a big aesthetic boost.

Growing plants in pots also offers tremendous flexibility and a measure of control that traditional gardening lacks.

Choosing the best pot for your favorite herbs will help ensure success with your container herb garden, so here are some helpful tips to get started on the right track.

The characteristics of the herb(s) you are growing are very helpful in determining the best container for your plant, in terms of material and size.

Plastic containers are best for herbs that like moist soil; terra cotta is best for herbs that prefer a drier soil.

The container should always be slightly larger than your plant and needs drainage holes to allow excess water to move out of the potting soil.

Shallow containers are best for plants with short root systems, while deep containers are best for plants with long taproots.

Common container materials

Common materials used for growing containers include ceramic, terra cotta, plastic, different metals, and resin. While aesthetics are important, each herb container material has advantages and disadvantages that should be considered depending upon your space and plant type.

Glazed ceramic pots offer the most variety in shape and color, which means they can often be used as a home design element. These are the best choice for someone who wants to match a color scheme in their home and ceramic works for many different herbs.

Plastic pots are popular as they are inexpensive, lightweight, and typically available in a wide range of colors. The non-porous material minimizes air exchange, keeping the potting soil moist longer. They are great for herbs that like moist soil like rosemary and cilantro.

Resin pots are made from wood resin and are lightweight, weather-resistant, and available in a wide range of finishes. They work well for plants you move back and forth from indoors to outdoors seasonally.
