This is becoming an ever more frequent story.
Since moving here to no man's land I haven't had much success in growing herbs.
I have a back deck that seems to get adequate sun and water. For a couple of years I used clay pots because I really liked the look of them. The problem is, of course, they dry out really fast. During hot summer days that can be a real problem.
Last summer I switched to plastic. They didn't look as good but I figured I would sacrifice looks for function. They did somewhat better but they still weren't thriving.
This year I'm again trying something new, an EarthBox.
