When choosing a mixture of herbs to plant together in a container, it is important to choose plants that have similar water, soil and sunlight needs and that grow well in containers. A good mixture for the new grower is parsley, sage, thyme, savory and oregano. Basil can be added if the container is large. Avoid overcrowding basil, as it needs good air circulation.
