Plant four 4-inch Bonnie herbs around the perimeter of the 18-inch bottom planter. Here are a few we suggest:
- Top 2 levels: Chives
- Level 3: Boxwood basil
- Level 4: Oregano and dill
- Level 5: Curley parsley, rosemary, lemon thyme, sweet mint, orange mint, pineapple mint
Fill the 13.5-inch planter (or 12-inch planter) three-fourths of the way with organic potting soil, then plant two Bonnie herbs. Repeat this process with the second 13.5-inch planter (or 12-inch planter).
Repeat Steps 5 and 6 with the remaining smaller planters, and plant a single plant in each.
