i was totally clueless about where to plant herbs (i knew they needed full sun, but i was thinking "really? do they actually mean full LOUISIANA sun?) so i decided to just put them in baskets so i could move them around to wherever they needed to live. 'sides, they're cute that way.
here's how i did it:
1. cheap baskets from walmart.
2. thick black trashbags
3. staple a bag around rim of basket
4. add bark for drainage, then dirt (no idea if this works, just thought i'd try)
5. plant seedlings
