I had intended waiting until the spring...or a thaw!! to start some herb seeds - mugwort, basil and others good for opening 3rd eye etc. However, going to the supermarket for the staffroom milk today, I spotted potted herbs going for 69p each. So I bought one of each - basil, mint, sage, Scented jasmine, dill, parsley, coriander, chives and thyme. Apart from the Basil and maybe, sage, none of them would have been my choice but as a absolute beginner at house plant gardening, I'm thinking chalk this year up to experience and go with the 'start from seed' idea next year. Bought a dinky little watering can and plant food too :)
I'm betting with myself they'll all be dead by February!!!!
