    Yes, you can plant them all in one pot. Mint will take over the space, however, so if you want it to share that pot, I would first put mint in its own pot, with drainage. This will prevent roots from a total takeover.

    If the pot is large enough

    I would not plant mint with anything. It needs a long window box to be able to grow out. Parsley and lemongrass love moisture and sun so they should be fine to plant together.

    You can grow herbs in pots together as long as you remember two rules: avoid mixing those that like plenty of water (such as chives, mint, chervil, coriander, Vietnamese coriander) with those that like a well-drained soil (such as rosemary, thyme, sage, bay, and oregano).

    Yes. Put a plant marker with the name of the herb (popsicle sticks work well) in each section so you know what's what!

    Be careful with the mint. It may overtake the other herbs.
