[/poor kermit joke]
Totes magotes going to try growing my own herbs. And by herbs I literally mean basil, parsley and mint. 'Sake.
Bought a pathetic basil plant (well actually plants, there are loads crammed into one tiny pot) which I plan on re-potting and eventually try propagating. If that works I'll start on mint, garlic, spring onions and anything else useful I can think of.
If THAT works I might event try some pansies/marigolds or something else pretty I can grow indoors by a window sill (not having the luxury of a garden, being stuck in the city centre).
Picked up some coco coir/peat today, thinking it would be sufficient to grow the bastard basil plant(s) but after some more reading it looks like potting mix is needed. The most simple potting mix recipe I found was coir, worm castings and perlite (expensive/unavailable) so I'll have to pick up the latter two tomorrow but saw neither on my travels today (I originally went out for soil but found none, would have to venture out to a homebase for that).
Any keen gardeners/growers here willing to pass on their wisdom? I'm actually quite looking forward to starting a new hobby.
What do you grow (athankyou)?
P.S. My most successful greenfingery to date was about 10 years ago when I kept a poinsettia alive for about 3 months longer than the usual 1-week that poinsettias seem to last. By accident of course.
