Just got a bunch of herbs to plant in my soon garden "beds/boxes" (55 gallon barrels cut lengthwise.) I will have 3 halves to plant the ten herbs in them. They are: Garden Sage (2), Lemon Balm(1), Lavender (2), Chocolate Mint (1), Spearmint (1), and I think just Mint (1), Chamomile (1), and Thyme(1).
I plan on one mint in each "bed" and the others will be dispersed likewise.
I could use Google but, do you happen to know if I should not "house" any of these together, or which ones would be best t

With a few exceptions, herbs don't have a problem growing with other herbs. Just don't crowd any of them too close to each other so that they have room to grow.

Mint will absolutely take over any space that's given. I would consider growing Mint only in a separate pot because you'll be pulling it up constantly. Even with that precaution, it has spread to three other pots

Do not plant the mint in those beds. Plant the mint in a separate pot.

Thank you for the heads up

Lemon balm is also an aggressive spreader

And I would make sure that the lavender has its own soil with more sand and better drainage. Lavender rots in potting soil and prefers rocky, sandy soil with little nutrition.
