There are certain herbs I’ve learned not to put in my flower beds and so I stick them into pots to contain them.
A few of these are mint.
I tried planting Lobelia around this mint…I can NEVER get lobelia to grow, no matter what I do…anyone else have this problem? I love it so much, wish I could!
Parsley – my husband took a hammer and tapped out the bottom of this pot and we sunk it in the flowerbed to contain it from spreading.
This is last year’s parsley that came back…
And oh my gosh, Thai basil – I planted this stuff last year and it took over my entire herb garden! So this year, I’m using it as a centerpiece on my patio table. I stuck some rose moss around the edges to trail over and make it decorative as well. I also stuck in a newly intriguing herb that smells divine…Pineapple Sage. I am dreaming of a salsa of mango, pineapple, red onion and jalepeno with some of this mixed in to top the mountains of fish I know Mr. Wonderful is bringing home this summer from his fishing adventures.
If the wind blows while we sit on the patio now, you can smell Thai basil and Pineapple Sage.
