What plants can I plant together for a kitchen garden?


I want to make a kitchen garden in a large pot but I do not know what plants I can plant together. For example, can I plant celery, parsley, mint, etc. in the same pot?

    It's important to choose all sun lovers or all shade lovers to grow in a single pot. Most herbs such as mint, parsley, Basil, and rosemary are all sun lovers. I don't know about celery.

      I buy Celery and cut the end off and plant it in some potting soil!

      I did this with my green onions and have been using them for the past 14 months! Take the onions and celery indoors in the winter!

    Watch mint, it may be better in its own pot. It can take over where it is planted and may crowd out the other plants.

    Hi Sharon,

    Wow, Nancy is right, watch out for mint, it will take over before you know it. Keep it in it's own pot!

    This is a really good question...for the answer google companion plants, it will tell you what is compatible with what and what to avoid putting together.

    Mint is definitely aggressive. Fortunately, many of our garden herbs are mint and can grow together. These include peppermint, spearmint, Basil, oregano, thyme, sage, rosemary, lemon balm, marjoram and lavender. There are several other mints that we use in cooking, as well.
