Basil – no, not the Fawlty type, but the herb.

I usually do pretty well with basil, sown from seed in the greenhouse but this year has seen a bumper crop, so everything with tomatoes has seen basil added liberally to it.

Sweet Basil

Sweet Basil

I grow the standard sweet basil but there are loads of options from the seed catalogues such as Thai, Lemon, Greek & Lime to name but a few. See here for some good information.

Oregano, Thyme, mint and rosemary also did well this year. The tomatoes, grown from seed by my pal Roy, were very obliging.



However, with the onset of Autumn, its nearly time to think about sorting out the greenhouse for next year – a bit difficult though when you’ve got so much still growing strongly.
