Culinary Combinations

Grow the ingredients for your favorite sauces and vegetable dishes in large, 24-inch-diameter pots.

Salsa Garden: Bush-type tomato, jalapeño (or hotter) pepper, and cilantro. Sow the cilantro seeds around the edge of the container. Plant onions in a separate, deep planter.

Pesto Pot: Basil, garlic, and parsley.

Soup Mix: Lemon grass, thyme, parsley, chives, chervil, and scallions.

Pizza Sauce: Bush tomato, sweet green pepper, onions or scallions, and oregano.

Kids’ Corner: Radishes, tomato plant, bush beans, basil, and carrots. Set tomato plant in center. Alternate clumps of basil and bean seeds in a circle around tomato. Mix seeds of radishes and carrots together and sow around outer edge; radishes will be pulled before carrots need more space to grow.
