SOMETIMES THE SIMPLEST SOLUTION IS THE BEST. A couple of weeks ago at Montgomery Place, a historic estate along the Hudson River, I saw an herb garden comprised of nothing but terra cotta pots, below, and had an epiphany. That’s what I’ll do, I thought. I wanted an herb garden but couldn’t figure out where to put it or what shape it should take.
I’ve amassed half a dozen pots, about 8″ in diameter. I’ll buy the herbs I normally use in summer salads and put one herb in each pot. I’ll group the pots in a sunny spot somewhere, and that’s it. Instant, portable herb garden.
