As in a traditional garden, sunny locations are great for tomatoes and most herbs. Locations for container flowers and small shrubs will vary by plant species. Be sure to use a high quality pot, and make sure it drains properly to prevent roots from becoming water-logged. Keep drain holes open by placing small stones in the container bottom before filling it with soil. Fertilize with Milorganite organic nitrogen fertilizer. The no-salt formula keeps troublesome salts from building up in your pots.
Most herbs are considered to be “lite-feeders”, they do not require much fertilizer, but a shot or two during the growing season will do them a world of good. Milorganite’s slow release, salt free formula is ideal for herb gardening whether you choose to grow them in a garden or in a container.
