Rosemary is not easy in the initial stages. Hence, I choose to buy from nursery :lol:
If you harvest / clean up the tips and replant your mint, maybe you can get better quality? :evil:

Has anyone dined at Hans Im Glück before? It's right beside the Thai embassy at Orchard... Each table has a full pot of rosemary for diners to pluck and sniff as they eat.. I love it!!!

I've grown mint n rosemary but realise I don't use much of these herbs in my cooking. So gave away those that I've been growing. My fave is still basil. Both thai and sweet basil. Still have my curry leave and kaffir lime plants These are the herbs that I use more often.

Had thai basil and they just grew n grew n became woody and then I threw it away.
I have sweet basil which I prefer. But somehow it's growing a lot slower than thai basil.
Have been replanting my mint with new cuttings. Except for 1 pot, the rest have leaves which are rather small n pale. They are all on the same organic soil. Couldn't figure out why. Maybe they mutated into the bonsai version :lol:

Curry plant is more like a shrub, ya? Not table top size, right?

Does your mint get a lot of sun? I bought two pots of mint seedlings some time ago, one did really well in bright shade, the other was weak and pale. I am now trying to sun it more often ... 做花奴。I have a pot of cherry tomato seedlings as well - also gotta shift it regularly so that it gets enough sun but not the rain. :sweat: I think it is easier to just buy the tomatoes from the supermarket. :lol:

I have difficulties growing sweet basil -the spider mites keep coming. Any tips on how to get rid of them naturally? They attacked my cactus orchid as well and I spent hours cleaning them off the leaves. :sweat:

Rosemary and mint for a start.

My daughters were given those starter pots with seeds and soil for Christmas. I had one unopened from long ago but not sure if the seeds are still viable. Anyway, my younger daughter potted all 3 a couple of days ago. We have basil (the one from long ago), mint and rosemary. Let's see what happens!
