10 Best Herbs To Grow Together in A Pot

by Sasha Ridley

    Why many people grow plants together in a pot (or containers)? There are some reasons for this. First, some plants require the same gardening methods, then this saves gardeners a lot of time. Some do not compete for nutrients in soil as their needs for the growth are different. Next, bigger plants help create shade for small plants when planted in one spot. Some also helps improve the flavor of their companions. Finally, some help repel pests of each other. Enough for a charming pot of multiple plants, right?
