Thank you everyone, so many helpful tips. Hoping to do a bit of seed shopping today and see what I come up with.

Thank you again everyone and I wish I could reply to you but I love all the suggestions and will see what I get a hold and try to grow. Basil maybe a bit if a challenge as we killed a Basil plant but I may try again and add coriander too.

Basil doesn’t like to much water. I had trouble it basil until I started neglecting it  Wink .

If it was basil from a supermarket, they never last long. The growers massively overseed the pots so you can have 50 or more plants per small pot. Unless you split the rootball and put them into bigger pots, they don't survive for long, because they want you to go to the supermarket to buy another one. Wink

Thank you that makes sense. I wonder how successful it is to try and grow from seeds, I could give it a go, wish me luck  Smile

Hi and thank you for the welcome. Learning so much here. I have even started to harden off my plants, they seem to be doing fine but my parsley definitely going to need a bigger pot this weekend.
