Got a mint one the other day, very healthy and growing really well.
I need to re-pot it already.

You should see how much they are at garden centres!!

...50p a pot is a great deal, I should think it's only the Basil that wouldn't fair too well outside if you want to create a herb garden.

I think they're meant for use in the kitchen but I suppose you could plant them outside.
Good thinking.

Fantastic deal- and even more fantastic than the deal, is the brill picture of the herbs -parsley the lion and co. !! how sweet!

Great picture !
Put a smile on my face after the disgusting disgraceful spectacle of last night's Rooney-esque shambles.

Fantastic choice of image, The Herbs were fantastic, used to love Parsley The Lion when I was a ickle rug rat

I put a mint one outside last year, I forgot what mint does. It's spreading worse than a triffed invading the place.

The herbs you buy in the supermarket often don't last long once you've got them home, even though you water them and look after them. Does anyone know why, or how to encourage them to thrive?

Same on offer at Asda for a small pot but they were all sold out. I bought some parsley and mint 2 years ago from Tesco. I put them in a bigger pot and left them outside and they are getting bigger and bigger each year.

voted hot especially for then picture of the herbs.

I agree, they don't - they seem to be grown in a thin very free draining medium, with no nourishment - but, as others have said, they do well if potted up, in compost, and put on the patio or where-ever, including the basil (as long as the slugs don't get it).
The chives and mint will last for years and the others will go to seed, which you could collect and sow in a new pot for next year!!

Nice, Love herbs!

Basil is best left indoors (unless you have a serious sun trap) and watered from the bottom-i.e in the saucer, not onto the compost. Put the others outdoors-they are loving this summer!
