Q.Depth of Containers for Growing Herbs Inside

Anonymous added on April 26, 2011 | Answered

I have to do my gardening inside and need to know the size and depth of containers for as many herbs as you are willing to give me. Room is not a problem. I have containers of just about all sizes [except strawberry jars and half barrels]. I can get those if you think they are needed for a certain herb.

As long as there is adequate room for root growth and good drainage, most herbs do not require anything real deep—at least 4-6 inches should suffice. This article will help with growing herbs in containers: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/herbs/hgen/growing-herbs-in-containers.htm
