It folds conveniently flat for easy storage when not in use. At $29.95 and lists free shipping at the moment... it's not a bad deal. They also have some other types of containers from window boxes to a vintage looking crate... all at reasonable prices.. definitely check out the link.

Window Boxes are perfect for an herb garden... and they come in so many sizes, shapes, styles, colors ... from the plain to the nifty... the picture above is a beautifully designed window box for a herb garden. It's available at White Flower Farm.

Planter Boxes are great if you have the space in a yard for one and are perfect for growing herbs... these are from Simply Planters... who says planters have to be boring and ugly....they are not only functional, but they're beautiful and truly add to the decor of your outdoor space. All are reasonably priced (and on sale right now) from $89.98 and up.

Maybe Individual Pots of herbs are more your style... have a sunny location in your kitchen... you can not only cut your food budget by growing your own herbs but also add to your decor at the same time... from plain shiny white pots to an array of colors to accent your kitchen... maybe unique pots to add interest... they're available all over from gardening stores to online stores..
