Herbs in large pot -- Full sun, partial or shade?
Last year I grew basil with great success -- it was in the corners of my raised bed with my veggies. My raised bed receives directly sunlight from about 10am till 6pm.
This year I bought hardened-off herbs from a local produce stand and want to plant them all in a pot. I have a large 18" terra cotta pot, and the herbs I have are: Sage, cilantro, Italian flat-leaf parsley, and more basil. I also have a rosemary plant, but I am planting it separately in another pot.
From what I've read, rosemary likes full sun and hot temps. Where should I put the other large pot with the other four herbs? My back patio receives direct sun also from 10am to 6pm. I'd thought maybe setting it within my side mulch bed, but it only gets direct sun for about 2 hours a day. The only morning-sun-only ("partial shade") spot at my house is in the front, and I'm not crazy about having my herb garden right at the front in plain view.
Thanks in advance!
