We have an old butlers sink with our herbs in,  but this year we are going to plant a strawberry pot that we don't use.   I have 4 lemongrasses on the go,  if they all take,, I 'll bring one for you at WS19.

The mint is probably going to have to be in a separate pot. It looks great.

That looks great!

I am growing only Bay and Rosemary at the moment. I usually have some Basil and Thyme through the summer but haven't planted any up this year. 

Its great picking your own herbs. They always seem more fragrant than shop bought even when 'fresh'.

This is my herb garden. I would like to get some wild garlic at some point, I think the smell would be amazing. The basil has been attacked by snails but is still holding out. My mint and marjoram had to be put in separate pots as they started growing insane.

I've just started lemongrass off,  bought 2 packs (4 pieces)  from the supermarket last week.  Throw them into a glass of water pop on the kitchen window, change the water every 2nr/3rd day,  so far I have 2 that have good strong roots starting, will pot them up over this weekend.

Don't grow my own herbs, help myself to next doors, with their blessing😁 I have used dry lemon grass in a very aromatic and flavourful Asian Pork Butt recipe I found. Tastes lovely with the Star Anise and other ingredients

Mine is rosemary thyme majoram chiveas as they are all hardy. Grow basil on the kitchen window as not too much sun and near tap. Basil loves water.

Potted in this, then into the planter.
