Advice on Growing Herbs Please

Posted: 07/07/2014 at 22:28

I grow basil a bit like lettuce Amanda. I prick some seedlings out to keep 2 or 3 in a pot which I allow to grow on to make bigger plants, and also keep a load in one pot which I just pick like cut and come again lettuce leaves till they're done. I just sow every few weeks to replenish.

Think they're all reported now Edd. As OL said - there was a kitchen one earlier but it's the first there's been for ages.

I'm off to bed. Work for me in the morning. Help yourselves to cake 

See you tomorrow at some point

You'll have to share the results with us OL

Looks like Dove's on the case and reported all of them 


Posted: 07/07/2014 at 21:52'll not be wanting any cake OL? 

We've saved you a bit Verd...for now....

I've got feet up too Dove, although bed beckons. Lime and coconut ice cream sounds very good but I've been eating a lot of strawberries and cream during Wimbledon so perhaps it's a bad idea....

Lovely eating your own produce lily isn't it?

My sphaerocephalons are still green up here. They're a bit later than the bigger varieties though. Perhaps that's the one you have Goldilocks

Hope you had a lovely time MrsG. Did you have cake too?

I put a couple of shelves on the fence in a previous garden and put some troughs of strawbs on them. Kept them off the ground and the slugs and snails had to work a bit harder if they wanted any

Well - it's a dangerous job bekkie - but I don't mind making the sacrifice for the good of my children...

Hate to say it but...we badly need some 'steady' rain here....
