  1. Scented geraniums eh….

    I’d love one of those! I also wanted to get a 3 pack of buttons from you… (an I heart dirt, what would nature do, and a garden hoe if available!)

    see you Sunday!

  2. Hello!

    I have planted pots of basil and parsley on my deck. (I learned last year that mint will even take over a planter box…)

    I am never sure though, how to take off basil leaves, avoid the flowering that supposedly makes the leaves bitter, but leaves enough leaves to allow the plant to survive! Last year I ended up with very tall and small leaved plants, when I took off the big under leaves.

    I don’t know much about herbs, but am trying to learn, and I love the taste!

    Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
