I brought the mugs over to the nearby gardening store Dig Gardens, where owner Maggie Morris placed river stones at the bottom of each mug for drainage. Plants in small containers, such as mugs, need just a sip of water to keep them happy. Then, we simply popped in the basil, lemon thyme, and rosemary plants. Ta-dah! A perfect windowsill herb garden.
