Beautiful basil for making pesto, putting in salads and cooking in general. Growing on my window sill.
do not bother
yep dead as soon as it was un wrapped - lasts 24 hours
Basil with extra protein!!!
Hatched insects within two days of buying and had to throw it away!
Excellent, very strong plants!
An excellent plant, bushy and full of strong leaves. I bought this along with 2 Mint, 2 Curled Parsley and 2 Thyme, all of which are strong plants with wonderful aromatic smells! I was very sceptical with some of the bad reviews but just went for it and I'm so glad that I did. When they were delivered yesterday morning I promptly re-potted them. so now I have a fabulous herb garden outside and at a very, very good price, far better than the prices at the garden centres! Well down to the growers and to Tesco in Spytty Park Store in Newport who brought them carefully with my online food order. Today they are looking really good, I can recommend them!
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.
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
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
the Basil was very limp and dying. I only managed to rescue enough leaves for one serving.
Good quality, I cut off some stems and dunked in water, 3 weeks later lots of roots and 3 new plants !
