We decided to plant our herbs in pots so that we could bring the entire plant inside if we needed it when cooking and to store for the winter. We potted most of them in these galvanized buckets in a tray. The basil plant’s in a bigger pot, because we eat a lot of basil!
To label each plant, we decided just to write on the pot what’s inside. The pots themselves were cheap, so even if we don’t end up reusing them for that plant in the future, it’s no big loss.
