The plants on the terrace got a real boost, despite the bad weather
from last week; many of them started blooming and the Fatsia Japonica
has doubled in size since early April!
But actually I wanted to show you the basil trick I've learned from
you've probably experienced that when you've bought a nice bunch
of basil at the greengrocer, the plant dies after some time, even
when you've put him in a larger pot; that is because to many seedlings
are put together and have no place to grow, and you will damage the
sprouts by tearing them apart,
squeeze a few tips before you eat it all and put them in water,
they start rooting after a week or two and then you can plant them
in the soil, and that's it,
only have to wait for the plant to grow :)
I usually put 3 in one pot.
Have a nice weekend!
