Fluted Windowsill Planter

Add some charm to your windowsill with a pretty planter. This one is a great option because it has a narrow, oblong shape and shallow depth ideal for a mini herb garden. Plus, it features dividers to keep your herbs separate, which will also help prevent aggressive herbs from taking over your entire planter. Place it in a window that gets plenty of sunlight and start growing herbs like rosemary—just remember to water them!

Dark Turquoise Ceramic Planter with Wood Stand

Some herbs, like mint, prefer to have their own space and aren't fond of sharing a planter. Mint is an aggressive herb and will choke other herbs if planted in the same container. To keep a steady supply of mint on hand (for all those tasty mojitos!), plant it in its very own pot, like this beautiful turquoise one. Keep this planter indoors next to windows that receive indirect sunlight to help your new mint plant thrive.
