As a renter without a yard, I’ve invested in a few pots and various types of edibles that are pot/deck/patio/porch/balcony happy. My two year old columnar apples were getting lonely, so this year we bought some herbs.
I have a tendency to want to buy EVERY herb at the nursery… somehow we managed to finally narrow it down to three: chocolate mint, habak mint and chives. (I like chives for their lovely petite flowers, especially.)
Not sure who’s bright idea it was to plant three types of herbs in ONE pot, but we did. Above are photos of what they looked like when we planted them. Below are photos of how much they’d grown in less than two weeks.
So we’re taking bets on which plant will crowd the others out and dominate the pot. Who’s your money on?
