This is my favorite planter to grow Herbs in. The pockets are just big enough to hold a good amount of plants and there's good drainage. I usually have it full of herbs such as - basil, oregano, thyme, sage, lavender, dill, parsley and also plant flowers or foliage plants to give it some interest. It's great to just walk outside when I'm cooking and grab a handful of fresh herbs.
Kat--here you go (I have the 24" planters). My plants loved these containers last year; I used coco coir as my growing medium, and they did great. The top container was great for growing baby lettuce greens.
Thanks Linda - That's a good price! I wonder if they sell the additional stackers? I bought one of mine a couple of years ago from a place called Aracely Stackers online, but can't find them any more. The other one I bought last year from Boca Bob on DG Marketplace - 3 tiered and his price was good. He also sold the coco coir and I think that was really good stuff!
(Mothballs to deter the chipmunks? Does that ring a bell with anybody?)
Cindy: Your herbs are looking really good! Isn't it just so nice to be able to walk outside and get what you want? They are just so aromatic and fresh!
Cherie...You would really like this planter! Like Linda, I had a nice little crop of Arugula growing until it started to freeze here! My herbs really love it!
As you can see...mine go through many transformations!
Beautiful container, Kat--the flowers and coleus really add a beautiful pop of color.
I don't think Garden Harvest Supply sells the individual pots (wish they did, because I don't use the bottom trays or castors). My coir is also from Boca Bob....he has a good price on that (although shipping on that heavy stuff is awful; however, Bob is very fair with his shipping prices)
I've heard about mothballs detering rodents also, but I have dogs so can't put anything on the ground that would be harmful to them.
