Answer: Hi Daniel,
The majority of herbs prefer a sunny position in the garden, very few will tolerate shade. You can happily grow more than one herb variety in a large pot but it is important to group your plants so that their water requirements are similar. An example of a good planting for a hot spot is rosemary, sage, thyme and oregano. (These herbs originating from the Medittereanean region, perform well with less water.)
