This year I seem to have finally made it into the safe zone with my at-home herb garden. The Bellocq Tea team gave us a stunning footed planter as a gift last year (the one above – full of paperwhites!) and Julia and I bought a mix of mint, rosemary and thyme to grow inside of it after the paperwhites faded. For the past ten years I’ve done this same process, only to find a mushy or dried out mess a few weeks later. But this year I finally found the perfect spot in the sun and have kept a close eye on things and…I finally have a healthy, thriving herb garden that helped me make a pretty delicious bowl of rosemary roasted potatoes this weekend. It got me thinking about how the right planter can not only grow your garden, but inspire you to get started in the first place. So I thought I’d share our favorite 10 planters that will work for indoor and outdoor gardens. And if you’ve got a grey thumb (I think I’m finally out of the black thumb zone) like me, remember a few key things: Avoid over-watering, soak pots in the tub if the material (like terracotta) will wick moisture away from plants and be sure to rotate so your plants are evenly sunned. Happy planting! xo, grace
