|One of the three mint selections|
The herbs that I have bought in from local garden centers, I thought if I put them all in pots they can't go walk about, can they ?. I did think hmm maybe they wont do to good in pots well judge for your selves, I seeded two lots of herbs one being the Coriander and the other Basil the basil failed miserable when nothing sprouted.
Seen here below the other two mints in the background while to the middle and lower photo two of the three choices of thyme.
|Two Mints & two of the three thyme|
All of the herbs I have planted in pots and old buckets have really surprised me with how vigorously they are growing, its still early in the year, see how long they last, I will leave over the winter to see what sprouts again next year.
The third choice of thyme with its first flower just showing, It is growing rapidly it was about a third of that size when bought less than a month ago. I bought an old herb book off of e-bay a couple of years ago stuck it on the book shelf till it was needed.
I only paid a couple of pounds for the book, money well spent.
This book is filled on every page with all known herbs what it doesn't cover is not worth knowing, the back third of the book is going to be far and away the best for me, the culinary recipes, ooh delicious
Last for this post my baby coriander transplanted yesterday appear to be doing well, hopefully in about a week I may see some green specs poking through in the basil seed tray.
