The perfect way to grow herbs is in a container. Most cooks only need a bit of their favorite herbs, so one plant of each kind is usually enough. Choose the herbs you use most and combine them in a single pot or basket filled with good quality potting soil. Cilantro, basil, sage, thyme, oregano, and rosemary are among the easiest to grow plants. Most herbs prefer a sunny spot and regular water and fertilizer.
