This time of year finds most gardeners out tending rows of vegetables, flowers, and herbs that are adjusting to a new life outdoors. Not every gardener, though, works a plot of land. Some work a series of pots and containers containing favorite herbs and vegetables, and beginning gardeners often begin greening their thumbs with a pot of basil on the porch. This great little Q&A in the New York Times offering tips on growing herbs in pots is invaluable. Covering annual and perennial herbs for a variety of uses and suggesting new ones for experimentation, the novice and the experienced gardener alike will find useful information to explore a whole new realm of gardening.
