Do you have any advice about how to group different of herbs together in pots? I’m sure some don’t do well with others etc. but I can’t seem to find any info.

Make sure you choose herbs that like the same amount of sun, water and soil pH. Then put the tallest growing in the centre and those that drape along the edges. Try to vary the edging herbs so as to get maximum contrast with colour and texture of leaves. This way the pot will be pretty even if the plants in it are not allowed to flower. pH is your smallest problem, because most herbs like a pH around neutral. Sun requirements can be found on our web-site in the "News & Info" section in the" Info Centre". You type in the name of the plant for which you want the info. For the more popular herbs the "Pro-Growers" section in the "Commercial" section gives you evwen more detailed information about soil etc.
