Keep it well-watered.

I've had mine for 4 weeks plus and it's still alive!. I am not green-fingered but with regular watering daily it is still going strong with lots of leaves.

Dead Basil

1 stars

I love basil but the last pot from Tesco was poor and nearly “dead on arrival”, I fact it died within 2 days and as Tesco don’t reply to email or photo calls, I had no choice but to throw it on the compost bin. I know all food suppliers are stretched at the moment, but unfortunately just about every delivery has items not fit for consumption. I shall give it another try this week....

Sometimes it's very bad quality

2 stars

Very hit-and-miss with the quality. Sometimes they are okay and other times they are half dead. The one I just received has a lot of black mouldy looking stuff on so many leaves that I had to throw away over half the plant. Check the plant well before you buy/accept it in your shop.

the Basil was very limp and dying. I only managed

This seemed to be anise basil and not what we were expecting. Ok in oriental dishes bu not suitable with tomatoes etc.

Generous sized pot, healthy plants, lasted 5 days

5 stars

Generous sized pot, healthy plants, lasted 5 days before I got to use them for pesto, and kept the little plants to transplant into pots for more lovely future basil. Not sure why people are moaning. The only thing is that I'd like to know what chemicals it's been sprayed with.

3 stars

I have bought this product several times, always via the online website. I’ve found that it ranges between being great and being very poor, hence the 3 star, middle of the road rating. Great = very fresh and lasted a long time. Poor = on delivery soil was dry and the basil was not fresh, with some of the leafs not fit for use.
