Parsley – from seed

September 26, 2009

Thanks to The Press – their suggestion is to soak the parsley seeds overnight before planting. I have also heard a tip to sow the seeds and then pour boiling water over them to get them going. We shall see!


Sweet Basil

September 25, 2009

Hoping to grow some basil (Ocimum Basilicum) from seed. Planted today, just sprinkled on top of the soil in a semi sunny spot (freezing, drizzly day in Christchurch today though – nice Canterbury Spring!)
