Cor Ten will easily curve so long as you are using correct gauge based on the curve you desire. Too thick and it will not curve, but will crease if you force it. Go to. Metal yard and discuss with one of the workers and they will guid you to correct gauge. In addition they can cut steel to the width you require as well.

Herb spiral gardens like this are suitable for compact spaces and as a feature garden. This clever vertical garden design is a highly productive, energy efficient way to grow food; can be made with a wide variety of materials; and maximises growing space.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Unexpected Edible Gardens
You know what goes with Cor-Ten steel ? Chives!
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Easy Herbs for Every Space
Curved, rust-colored metal containers are the perfect foil for the bright-green foliage of many herbs. They're a contemporary approach to time-honored rectangular or square wooden planter boxes. Planting in containers also allows often-diminutive herbs to assume a place of importance in the landscape.
1. A container. It’s been said that when choosing a container, you are limited only by your imagination and a drainage hole. Proper drainage is essential, as edibles do not like wet roots.Here, chives, oregano and other herbs grow in a custom steel planter with two layers of planting area and plenty of drainage into a gravel courtyard.
If you're looking to break out of the wood rectangular raised-bed box, consider using Cor-Ten to create some great curves in a container garden.

container gardening. Size matters when it comes to containers for edibles. Most vegetables have rather large root systems that require pots to be deep and wide. Plus, larger containers won’t dry out as quickly, making it easier on you and less stressful for your plants. Find pots at least 12 inches wide and deep; 16- to 20-inch pots are even better
