What you need:
  • Strawberry pot
  • Crock
  • Assorted 4" herbs
  • Slow release fertilizer
  • Potting soil
The first step is to place some crock in the bottom of the pot. The crock will aid in drainage and keep the herbs from getting "wet feet".

Next, fill the pot with soil up to the level of the first planting holes. Mix a couple tablespoons of slow release fertilizer into the soil.

Now you're ready to start planting the herbs. The best way to plant a strawberry pot is to lower each plant into the pot and then carefully guide the foliage through the planting holes. Firm the plants in, adding more soil as necessary. If you are using a pot with multiple levels of planting holes, add more soil up to the next pockets and repeat this step until they are all filled.

After all the herbs have been planted in their respective pockets, fill the container the rest of the way up with soil.

The last step is planting some herbs in the top of the pot. For a small container like this one, one plant is about all you have room for. Larger pots can accommodate more plants. Firm in the last plant and water the container thoroughly.
