Seattle Patios: Potted Plant Combos Perfect for Urban Gardening

growing herbs

Think your small Seattle patio can’t handle a garden? Think again!

You can definitely have a garden. It just might need to be scaled down a bit. As in, think post. Because pots lend themselves well to urban gardening. Self-contained, they allow you to create mini gardens in places where gardens wouldn’t normally grow – like on a cement patio. 

Pots are also a great option because you can contain your plants. And, you can move them if you need to! The following plant combinations grow well together. Rather than being limited to one pot per plant, you can have a diverse garden.

Don't let the city define your garden. Make the most of even a small space by using pots and creative plant combos.

Herb Goodness

What makes your typical romp in the kitchen extraordinary? Often it is fresh herbs. While you could stock up on all the flavorful goodies you want with plastic containers from the grocery store, this can get a little old. Not only do you not know how old the herbs actually are, it is not uncommon for a lot of those herbs to go to waste!

Having your own herb garden allows you to always have fresh goodness on hand. These could include:

  • Basil
  • Parsley
  • Cilantro
  • Chives
  • Marjoram

 

The Bloody Mary Garden

Do you dig Bloody Mary’s? Take your game up a notch with a fresh twist. Not only will this planted combination work well to spice up your morning cocktail, they will also work well in salsas. These could include:

  • Jalapenos
  • Basil
  • Chives
  • Cilantro
  • Tomatoes

 

Salads for Days

Whether you are a casual salad dabbler or it is your go-to meal, there is nothing quite like a bowl full of fresh leafy flavor. This combination of herbs and lettuce pair well together, helping you create a beautiful and healthy dish:

  • Tarragon
  • Lettuce
  • Parsley
  • Chives
