I’ve always found it interesting to view theme-based gardens. Some take up quite a bit of space and require more planning than most of us have time for. Then I came across the idea of creating a theme-based pot. Now that’s something I can do in a weekend.
With spring coming on, you might consider creating a miniature theme garden. Although edible herbs are all the rage, don’t forget many herbs can be used for remedies. I’ve collected here four groups of herbs for common physical complaints. These have been selected by professional herbalists but you should investigate further before taking them.
Each group of medicinal herbs have similar growing needs – full sun and regular watering and will be happy growing in the same pot. Plant them in a container at least 20 inches in diameter.
Before using these herbs, please consult a reliable source of herbal information. All medicines, whether herbal or pharmaceutical, should be used with care. One of the best online sources is the American Botanical Council at abc.herbalgram.org. Do a little research to know how they can be safely used.
