Mediterranean Herbs: These herbs are very sun-loving herbs. And they also enjoy dry soil rather than higher moisture. Few examples of Mediterranean herbs are sage, rosemary, marjoram, lavender, oregano, and thyme. We can plant these herbs together in a pot or any other planters.
Water Loving Herbs: These herbs are also sunlight loving herbs but they like a higher moisture level of soil instead of dry soil. Basil and parsley are moisture-loving herbs and we can plant them together.
