8 Planters That Will Help Keep Your Herbs Alive No Matter What
As kids, we’re taught that plants need soil, water, and sunlight to survive. Easy enough! But, if you’ve ever tried to keep a pot of herbs alive on a windowsill, you know it can actually be pretty tricky. Too much sun will scorch tender leaves, and erratic watering can drown or dry them out completely. If this sounds like your gardening track record (nice to meet you!), there’s good news: You don’t need a green thumb to grow beautiful, healthy herbs at home. Heck, you don’t even need a windowsill. You just need the right planter.
There are a slew of clever solutions that offer smart lighting schedules, manage soil moisture, and even provide a combination of both. Plus, there are tons of stylish options depending on whether you want to grow from seeds, use potted herbs, or like the convenience of pre-seeded pods. With minimal work, you’ll have fresh, abundant greens for all your herb-based recipes — no matter the season or the color of your thumb. Need some suggestions on which planter is perfect for you? We’ve rounded up the best options to get you started.
