Q.Growing Herbs in Outdoor Containers

Anonymous added on April 25, 2011 | Answered

Can I plant herbs in an outdoor container with other flowers? For example, can I plant rosemary, basil, or cilantro in the same large outdoor pot with petunias, marigolds, etc?

Yes, as long as they have similar water needs. For example, basil and petunias would be good, but I would not plant rosemary with petunias, because rosemary likes less water while petunias like more. Rosemary and marigolds or geraniums would be good, because those flowers can tolerate less water.
