Giving away basil plants

Jan 2010

Since we’ve just moved into a new year, I decided it was time to trim the garden back a bit. I’ve removed many of the smaller basil plants and re-potted them. I’ll be giving them away to anyone who wants one.

The basil plants are now individually potted in Styrofoam cups with soil and a little perlite on top. To help them through the transplanting phase, I’m using a 15W 12 LED grow bulb. This bulb uses very little power and has a mix of red and blue high powered LEDs at the correct wavelengths for photosynthesis.
