A few months ago we planted fresh thyme, rosemary, mint, parsley, oregano, and dill in two big pots on our patio. We also have a basil plant. The basil is now slowly dying, but the potted herbs are flourishing. We’ve battled mildew with milk baths and aphids with a soap-based spray. It was touch and go for a bit there, but each week there are fewer holes in the mint and less white film on the rosemary. The parsley is growing so much that we may have to get a third pot soon!
