In the past, we have discussed quite a bit about growing potted herbs. Indoors or outdoors, we have provided quite a few tips and suggestions. Now we would like to narrow it down even more and give you a list of potted herbs that like shade. So read on and let us know what you think!
1. Mint - it has always been a big favorite. Well now we recommend potting it up in a shady area. It grows so fast and is so easy to tend to, that we like to use it potted up. Make sure that you don't plant directly into the soil in a shady spot or it will crawl toward the sunlight.
2. Chives - In a garden pot next to a kitchen door, this herbs does well if it's a shady spot. Small clumps like grass will sprout. All you need to do is keep them trimmed.
3. Parsley - Every ones favorite! A flat leaf parsley will grow best if the potting soil is right and keep moist. You can place the pot in partial shade with much success.
4. Cilantro - This is a favorite in the Southwest, where it is used a lot with Mexican foods. If you want to pot it up, just place the pot in the shade. Cilantro doesn't like direct sunlight.
5. Golden Oregano - Most varieties need full sun but the leaves of the Golden oregano can fry in direct sunlight. Place the pot in a partial shady spot with much success.
6. Thyme. Most varieties will tolerate shade but we recommend you let the soil dry out between watering. Use this herb in other containers where you desire a pleasant fragrance.
