Awhile ago I posted about wondering if I should repot my rosemary but I wasn't sure how to explain the problem so finally I took a photo. The photo below (I hope it posts correctly) shows my container-planted herbs last year (April 2010) and the same container this year (March 2011).
They spent the winter outside here in Portland, OR. I basically neglected them other than watering them and drilling some holes in the plastic container before I planted them. Hopefully you can get a sense of the size based on the leaves of the oregano, the hand-holes on the container (it was originally meant for holding beverages in ice, I believe) and so forth.
The problem is I'm struggling to figure out what kind of container could be big enough to replant this in if I were to replant it.
Ideas? Do I have to replant this year or is it probably good for another year? And if I do have to replant...what the heck should I plant rosemary IN? I want to container garden this plant if possible.
