Using garden planters for herbs

bullylady(5)April 21, 2011

Do I need to drill drainage holes in the planters that I plan on planting herbs in? They're previously been used for flowers and have a layer of lava rock under all the soil but no holes in the bottom.

Most herbs do best in a fast draining mix like gritty mix and a planter with drainage holes would be required. Al
