I've Still Got Those Green Fingers

 
Spurred on my by accidental rooting of some cut Rosemary last month I decided to pop some Basil in the little mug on the windowsill to see if that would root as easily, and yep ... just three days later look what I got.
 
 
Potted up in a couple of my vintage pots they look brilliant ....

 
... and give me something nice to look at while I'm washing the pots.
 
It smells gorgeous too when the sun shines on them first thing every morning, who needs artificial air fresheners!!

  4. Ah! Just grown some from seed! I could have got a plant from Aldi and taken cuttings. I did buy a packet of rosemary from there and put them in water, 8 pieces altogether, 5 plants obtained from the pieces. The price of the rosemary pieces? Just 40p!
    You prove that it doesn't need to be expensive to grow things!

  7. I didn't know you could do that with basil. I have a love hate relationship with the herb. I love to eat it and it hates me growing it. I've got an old galvanised sorting tray that I grow it in and it always does well in that but anywhere else I try it and I think I kill it with kindness.

  10. Pretty cool isnt it? Makes you wonder what other herbs will grow from a cutting.

  11. I'm definitely giving this a go, I think I'll try rosemary first. I have have the same relationship with basil as Kev does, I love it but have always had trouble growing it.

  12. I love that you can do this with basil. I once filled (stuffed) a strawberry style growing pot with plants all from one 'growing herb' pot from the stupormarket. :-)
