Thank you both so much. I didn't know miracle grow was not organic. I guess I never really thought about it. I will check for organic stuff. Thanks!

Hi and welcome to the team
When growing in pots, putting a small amount of course material like gravel in the bottom of the pot is a good idea for drainage. Since I grow organically I can not recomend mirical grow, there are so many organic alternatives to manmade chemical fertilizers which are so bad for the environment.

The only advice I have is that these herbs for me in VA like full sun and warm weather. My rosemary never winters over but my thyme and sage do. Basil I have never known to winter over except in very warm places. It is nice to grow them in a place that you can get to easily and when you are cooking can just step out and snip some off if you need it. I love doing that. Good luck! emoticon

My name is Yi. I don't have much of a green thumb. I keep trying though because I love plants. I used to help my mom with her beautiful garden. I would like to grow some herbs(basil,rosemary,thyme,sage)in a pot. I would really like to get started this weekend. Do I need to put some rocks in the bottom of the pot for drainage? Is using Miracle Grow a good idea? My sister uses it and her plants are gorgeous. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks!
