If you'd like to grow some of your own herbs for cooking purposes, why not make the garden they are grown in decorative? Plant the herbs in various clam shells and conk shells for display!
In natural shells, this garden looks quite nice outdoors. It blends in with the surrounding area and gives a subtle, decorative touch.
Additional step: have adults or children paint the shells before planting the garden for a more vibrant looking garden.
This project is quite easy, and can be done by the youngest child.

I started buying those reasonably priced small potted herbs that are sold in most grocery store produce departments year round and thought they would make a great table centerpiece at home and for a bridal or new home shower or even for a natural style wedding!

When growing herbs, is it better to grow them all together or in separate pots or doesn't it matter?
By terry from Qld
I suggest you group each herb in its own container. Certain herbs require dry soil, others like to be kept more moist. How would you handle this problem if they are in the same pot? One plant would suffer. Guess it would be okay to put more than one type of plant in the same container as long as they both had the same requirements for sun and water. Happy planting.
If you grow a variety of herbs in one pot together, will it affect the taste of certian herbs?

I am interested in growing herbs in a 14-20 inch pot on my deck this summer. Is it possible to grow them in a pot or will they spread too much for that type of gardening?
