Fresh Salad Bowl

What could be better than a fresh salad bowl? I use a low ceramic bowl, plant a variety of lettuces and herbs each spring. Throughout the summer I go out to my salad bowl and pick fresh greens for dinner. It makes a great centerpiece for the outdoor patio table as well.

Do you use a special potting soil? I cannot get anything to grow!

I think for this pot I just used Black Gold potting soil. The trick is keeping it watered and a couple hours of sun a day. They don't like too much sun and what is great, you can move the pot around during the day to a shaded/sun area.

Also, be sure your pot has a drainage hole. I put some potting gravel in the bottom before planting.
