Herbs That Take Over

May 28, 2010Katie

Here’s a tip for you if you want to grow parsley and mint but don’t want it taking over your herb garden as it tends to do.

Sink a pot down into the soil and plant your parsley or mint in it. It will contain the roots and keep it from spreading but you can still enjoy it in your garden.  I think it makes for a pretty added decoration with the pot as well.

Be careful to not let it seed, or your task will be in vain!

    Very nice solution and I agree that it looks good in the pot. Thanks! Annie

    I didn't know parsley would spread like that.
