Which Vegetables/Herbs Grow Well Together
Hello, Recently I planted some herbs in the same pot together and I wanted to see if you could offer some insight. To give you a background, I live in an apartment so my balcony (that is covered overhead) is where I grow my garden in the summer. My apartment faces north on a little lake in Indianapolis. I don't know if that helps but I thought it might! Last year I planted 4 different types of tomatoes and they all did way better than I thought they would. I had a lot of tomatoes but they were late bloomers. This year I chose 3 tomatoes (black prince, husky cherry red and big beef) and chose the 4th pot for herbs along with another new pot for herbs too. I planted rosemary, thyme and oregano in the larger pot and then I planted basil and lavender in a regular sized pot. I will be getting chive from my mother over the weekend to add to a pot as well. My question is will these combinations of plants in the same containers do well or will they not work? Since I planted them last night I could still manage to switch them around before they get set in their roots. I wanted to ask because I have heard mixed opinions from multiple websites. Please and thank you! Sincerely, Lauren

You just need to make sure you have a sufficient sized container for the plants and allow enough space for them to grow and spread.
Sounds like a lovely mix of tomatoes and herbs!
