Firstly, planting in pots provides you with that extra bit of planting space in your outdoor garden. For those with little or virtually no space, pot plants are the ideal solution for this.

Use pots to propagate your new grows as well as starting an indoor garden of your own. You get the benefit of space when you choose a smaller pot to plant your herbs indoors. You can place these anywhere as long as it’s a spot that gets enough light.


You can move potted plants around with ease. If a plant you’ve planted in a pot is not doing so well, with pots you get the benefit of movement.

You can simply move that plant to a better spot and watch how it grows. This is a solution for both indoor and outdoor gardening.

With indoor plants, you have a few options and variations in size. You can also hang potted plants for better use of space.
