Easy way to grow Herbs.


The supermarkets have pots of Parsley, Thyme and other
Herbs now, well rooted for £1.50. I am not sure about
Basil as its a summer seasonal plant.
A good way is to get some, take half of the plants out of the pot seperate out, and replant round the edge of a tub
or planter which is a bit warmer than the open ground.
Cover with fleece until they toughen up.
Eat the rest.

...and fresh basil is delicious on home made pizza which is what I'm making right now. My dough is fermenting! The herbs freeze really well too. Ice cube trays potions them out perfectly. Fill a giant ziploc freezer bag with cubes of frozen herbs. Then toss them into soups, stews or tomato sauce. Blog on the way.
