Soil3: The Best Potting Soil For Herbs

Hillary is communications director for Super-Sod. She earned her BS in Horticulture from UGA and has spent the last 30 years marketing plants and gardening products. She used to be a tree snob, but after walking barefoot on a Zoysia lawn, is now a Zoysiagrass snob. When not picnicking on her own Zeon Zoysia lawn, growing vegetables, identifying roadside weeds, or planting hydrangeas and Japanese maples, she spends her time pursuing the domestic arts of knitting, cooking, canning, making things like beeswax candles, and throwing dinner parties. Her great love is helping customers learn how to take care of their lawns, garden better, and enjoy the journey.

When you use our Soil3 for herb container gardening, your herbs will grow anywhere! Even if you live in an urban area or have poor soil structure, the nutrient-packed humus compost from Soil3 will allow your plants to thrive. 

Soil3 is the perfect growing medium for herbs because of its water-retention capabilities and natural pH balance. It also helps ward off diseases through beneficial soil microbes. 


Whether you simply appreciate the convenience of having herbs on the porch or want to try gardening for the first time, using Soil3 as potting soil for your herbs will help them establish a healthy root system and an abundant yield.

Here are a few herb container gardening tips from your friends at Soil3:

  • Use mid-sized or broad, round "bowls" to grow all of your cooking herbs.
  • Soil3 is the perfect Growing Media, or a compost-soil mix.  This will act as both a fertilizer and nutrient supplier, making it the best type of potting soil for your herbs and will help them grow large and quickly.
  • Choose your favorite herbs, such as basil, coriander, oregano, creeping thyme (for a more flowy appearance) or any type of your favorite herb.
  •  Be sure to plant different types of herbs in different containers due to their individual watering and sunlight requirements.
  • All you need to do is plant and water to achieve your own herb garden when you use Soil3 as the growing media.
