Herbs in the shade; 13 edible shade plants

That reduces the possibilities, but there are still plenty of opportunities to start a herb garden. You don't have to have a herb garden in the garden; it is certainly possible in pots. The roots of herbs generally do not reach that deep. It is recommended to use very large pots; from 10 liters. This way the pot has enough soil and water if you are not there for a number of weeks; after all, small pots dry out faster.
