What’s the best kind of soil for growing culinary herbs in containers?

I have mine in Miracle Grow Organic Compost, but they don’t seem to be flourishing. They are puny and VERY easily overwatered even though the containers provide drainage. I also tried growing lettuce in the same kind of soil. The seedlings sprouted, but then stopped growing all together soon afterwards. The herbs and the lettuce are getting plenty of direct sunlight, so I know that’s not the issue. What do you think?

  1. I like Miracle Grow Moisture Control Potting Mix. It helps with that overwatering situation, and it has built in fertilizer. While you are at the store get a moisture meter, stick that in the pot before you are thinking of watering to see if you need to water. Check the size of the pot, if it’s too small the plants won’t have room to spread out and that might be stumping the growth rate.
