Cuttings/Division:
Basil Red

Update: Last Week  of October 2012The Basil seedlings are slow to grow this year so I bought a "Red Basil" As this is a single plant and bursting to flower I thought I'd take some cuttings to prune it's growth a little. These very soft cuttings should take root in a jar of water...hopefully increasing my supply of Basil.
Update: Last Week  of October 2012
Some of those early planted Zagreb Soldier Beans are flowering already...not so the Purple Kings in Bed 3 I think I'll need to replace those ones...not all experiments work out well!!
Update: Last Week  of October 2012The Golden Podded Peas growing on the cage in Bed 6 are podding up now and providing great shelter for newly planted Cucumber seedlings beneath them.
