Planting Herbs in Metal Container

Anonymous added on May 14, 2011 | Answered

I have a metal trough-shaped, verdigris-colored container that I bought at Marshall's a few years ago. Printed on the bottom is: For decorative use only. Not for food. Can I safely plant herbs in this?

When growing herbs indoors in a container, the most important thing to remember is to provide a growing environment of nutrient rich soil that has good drainage yet holds moisture. I would recommend placing a plastic liner inside before adding plants or even choose a small plastic pot that will fit inside the metal container.
