I can't take care of houseplants so what makes me think I can care of herb plants? I've tried it before and they grew like weeds. We found that we had more herbs than meals to incorporate them with. Then I wasn't caring for them properly and they had begun to dry out.
Today, I discovered these wonderful urn-filled with planted herbs. Should I give it another try? Heck, it may be worth ordering just for the urns!
