Does anyone know of a place where I can purchase herb plants to grow in pots? I'm looking for basil, rosemary, thyme, chives, etc. Would also be interested in planting a lemon tree. Any information would be appreciated!

try the garden center just off of 65 on the transverse road. They have had herb plants, and fruit trees.

If that fails, let me know...I have some seeds that I will share for Dill,Oregano,Chives, Sage, Sweet Basil, Basil, Thyme, Tarragon, and Cilantro.

I grown a lot of my own herbs, as well as potatoes, peppers, carrots, tomatoes, and pineapple.

Wow, thanks for the info! I believe I saw the place you're talking about on our last trip to the other side of the island. If they don't have them though, I would really appreciate the seeds. I'll post what I find at the nursery.

I would love to get some rosemary clippings. Rosemary is probably the herb I use the most and comes in handy in Cozumel since chicken and pork really seem to be your best bet at the grocery store and rosemary is great with both. I've had good and bad experiences with beef there, but maybe a marinade with rosemary and garlic would help with the cheaper cuts. I won't be back until August, but would love to get a clipping if the offer is still open then. Thanks!

Just wondering if you grow any of your plants in 5 gallon buckets? We do not have much yard, but plenty of roof/terrace space, so thought I would try the buckets.

the only time I use buckets is when I grown things upside down. Otherwise, no buckets.

I use split bamboo that I find on the east side to grow my herbs in. Just drill some holes for drainage, add dirt, and plant seeds, or plants. You can prop the bamboo with some small blocks or rocks to keep it stable.

Plastic pots you can buy at places like Mega but they will only last maybe a year if they are exposed to the sun.

Any pot that is dark in color will heat the soil, and may burn the roots...so you might consider painting the container white.

Chedrui's did have some medal framed planters (square and hanging) with a fiber type liner. Those would work well.

I prefer wooden oblong planters, but they have to be made.
