"Great pot for herbs" star star star star star_border This is a great pot for herbs in the kitchen. I thought I would not have to water as often but I do, it's just the plant takes up as much water as it needs and you are not in danger of over watering. I have only planted basil and found the roots grow down the felt pad and into the water, which means you can't re-use the pads. It would be great if Lakeland sold replacement pads as I think you would need more - I only have one left. It looks nice as well.
