    Went to Lowe's yesterday and they have their annuals, some mixed baskets and herbs on clearance. Managed to pick up a really nice large Basil and two oregano plants for $2.50 total! [​IMG]
    This is how I planted them [​IMG]

    Prune back all those seed heads on the basil (and keep them pinched back) and they should put out lots of new growth.

    Yeah, I figured I needed to do that, just planted it in the dark late last night then it poured rain and have been busy working on our shed and painting DH's home office today. [​IMG] I will get out there first thing in the morning and get it pruned up. [​IMG]
