Herbs like rosemary, lemon grass & garlic chives can feature as the star attraction in large pots. They provide a fragrant entry feature with seasonal flowers + access to the kitchen for quick meal additions and herb teas. Partner with a cascading plant like variegated mother of herbs, sweet potato vine or licorice vine. Regular 'haircuts' will help shape your herbs into a beautiful edible planter.
