I just let it all die down naturally and then leave it to dry out in a cool room till next year and then start it off again by giving it small amounts of tepid water until it shows signs of growth and then slowly increase the watering until it starts to grow leaves then give it small amounts of feed

I put my pepper seeds in to warm compost in a small propogator and put the clear plastic lid on making sure the vents were closed and stood it on top of the double radiator in the kitchen,they were up in a week,planted them into large seed tray,now have 12 little pepper seedlings

Dont know why but I always have problems getting parsley to germinate so I buy the pots of it at asda and pot them on,I have 3 large pots on the go at the moment and its going great,I have the curled and the flat leaves,I know its cheating but at least I have a lot to go at,the ones I did last year are going very well too

hello Angelstar958,I agree pineapple mint has a lovely smell,I try to grow lots of different ones,when I am going to have a lamb dinner I make the mint sauce 2 days before and cut as many different ones as I have then chop them all up together,makes an awesome mint sauce especially over new Jersey Mids

last year I grew Little Gems in a trough, very successful,grew Webbs Wonder in a pot ,just one per pot,just took enough leaves for each meal,lasts ages like that,also gave some away to friends and they did the same,saves cutting the whole plant and then having to throw it away if its not eaten,one plant can last a week or more
