Hello all, I have a big strawberry pot (terracotta), which I have used for herbs instead. The trouble is that the thyme, sage, helichrysum curry plant and rosemary that are on the top, have lost all their bottom leaves and has only a bunch of them on the top, and they don't seem to be growing back. What could I do?



I don't know how big your strawberry pot is, but when I had a terracotta one like this, it was probably about 50 cm high and the space across the top was no more than 30 cm, might even have been less.

If yours is similar, and all the herbs you mentioned are planted in the top, none of them has enough room to produce good foliage. Rosemary will take up the whole pot, including root room, all on its own.

Can you post a photograph please?
