It’s late February and I’m already planning my veggie/herb garden for this year. I didn’t really use any of the peppers or tomatoes we got last year. This year I want to focus almost exclusively on herbs especially basil, oregano, parsley and rosemary. Those were the herbs I used the most last year. I put the herbs in pasta. I am playing around with some of the online garden planning tools like My Potager. So here’s the thing, I have medium sized containers. About 20” by 15”. Most sources are suggesting spacing of 12-18” which is impossible especially since I plan to plant multiples of each herb especially the basil which I tend to over harvest. The questions, Has anyone gotten away with having multiple herbs within a small container and they thrived without competing for nutrients? How densely can I plant the containers without overcrowding? Also, I’ve been tracking the temperatures in each planter with those Bluetooth plant monitoring sensors. So far the temperature seems to stay around 50 degrees F. The plant database on the sensor interface says the temperature is ideal for basil and other herbs but I’m thinking it’s too cold to plant basil. Has anyone had success despite these obstacles? Thanks.
