Yellowing Basil plant leafs.

Posted: 15/01/2014 at 22:20

Basil is a half-hardy annual plant, I grow it outdoors in the summer.

Don't know a lot about growing herbs indoors but me thinks it's probably dying due to lack of sunlight. You've done really well to keep it until now and if it's on a window ledge you aren't going to get more light by moving it.

Other's maybe along shortly to give better advise.

If you don't already have any of the above, which I'd recommend as first's, mushroom compost can be bought very cheaply from small nursery's for just over a £1 a bag and can be dug in.

What's your day been like?

thanks artjak.

Hasn't stopped raining but my parcel arrived.

Completed a form for an allotment and am number 7 on the list.  Not going to hold my breath though, it could still take a couple of years to get to the top. Apparently you start with half a plot, which is approx 150 yards...sounded like good news...as  Zoomer tries to work out how big that is in feet and inches

Cheap dahlia tubers

I grew a Sir Alf  Ramsey dahlia last year in a pot, boy was it big, the stem must have been an inch thick, made the other dahlia's in the garden look every so insignificant.

If it gets through the winter, stored, was going to plant it in the garden this year.

 one happy bunny, received a very nice e-mail from Customer Services apologising for the problems with delivery of my order, they've spoken to the parcel company who  will now leave it in GH.

...also finished the online training at work and passed...

It just needs to stop raining now.... things happen in three's...I live in hope...

I've been on a training day at work but found time to ring the delivery service, the gardening order hadn't yet been dispatched back to the company so I've asked them to keep it before first asking if I'd be charged for storage then told them the company had been contacted and I was waiting for a reply...not received an e-mail yet.

...and it's rained most of the day...I've had better days...

Chicky. They grow well from seeds. I grow from seed and also saved tubers.Can't say I've noticed alot of difference between the two.
