    Default Thai basil

    Hi All,

    The lttle Lady has found the perfect way to grow your own Thai basil. After very little sucess with seed she brought a plant from a supermarket.
    Cuttings were taken and left in a glass of water on the windowsill for 2 weeks and became coverd in very healthy roots, then transplanted to pots kept on the patio.
    Hope this helps, she is over the moon...

    P.s we tried to attach a photo but its too big, if we can find a way of making it smaller we will.

    I use PowerPoint. Insert picture (not open) and right click on the image and Save as Picture.

    Don't worry what the image looks like in PowerPoint. You may just see part of the image. It will be fine once you've saved it.

    Really no need, Colle, if you just require to decrease the file size. For example, a 1mb photo will reduce to around 300kb once saved through PowerPoint.

    Pixresizer will easily resize photos in one click and it's free.

    Not seen Thai basil in supermarkets down here, which supermarket chain did you find it in?

    Pretty sure it'll be Horapha and not Krapow.
    Horapha's pretty easy to grow anyway in the summer months.
