The Battle for Herbal Supremacy

I’ve tried growing coriander in the planter pot in our back garden before. Suffice to say, it didn’t go well.

On Saturday, we dropped by our local Home Base at Wandsworth and picked up some rosemary, and some mint. Hopefully they’re a bit hardier than the coriander was.


With only one planter pot in our possession, they’re forced to share some space. I’m wondering if one of them will take over and force the other one out – my money is on the mint winning.

Place your bets!

    As a seasoned herb killer, I can say that mint is actually pretty tough stuff!

    Yep, I’m going mint too. The mint in our vegie patch is taking over anything either side of it!

    I’ll go for Rosemary, her stalks seem tougher, even though Mint waves his arms around quite strongly and blatantly…
