I spent some time wondering around Tesco's this evening. My daughter has a class and I have an hour to fill but I don't really want to go shopping so I will have to find some other way to occupy myself in future. As I write I find more arguments not to go , I don't like Tesco, its layout or much of its produce and I also find it quite expensive.  Anyway moan over, back to the story ! I came across some Basil reduced. It was £1.19 reduced to 24p. As it is a living plant I thought I would buy it, take it home and see if it survives into next week. I'm not good with plants so I'm hoping it will be ok. It is now living on the windowsill and the kitchen smells great. I think that it will be a nice ingredient to have to hand , if it survives that is !


  1. Not familiar with the weather in England, but my slightly smaller plant purchased in March is now practically a bush! Granted, I live in Texas where it is always a wee bit warmer than the U.K. . . But just letting you know, it might outgrow your window in no time! It might be a good idea to replant into a slightly larger pot if you plan to transfer it outdoors when the weather turns warmer.

  2. Thanks for the tip, I will bear that in mind.
