First you will have to match the flower/plant and herb needs to the sun and pot size. Take a look at our website on container gardening. Even though it refers to vegetables the basic principles (location, watering, pot size, drainage) apply to flowers, herbs, and ornamentals. https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/container-gardening
