I’m not the best person at gardening, though I’m probably better at it than looking after house plants because at least the rain will water the plants when I forget to. (& I undoubtedly do!)
About a month ago I bought a Mint plant for the kitchen (to use in all my summery drinks) & I was really pleased with myself as I had remembered to water it & prune it & it was growing wonderfully. So I decided that as I had discovered it was a Peppermint plant I would by a normal Mint plant & a Basil plant.
All had been going so well, I was still remembering to water them & prune them & we had used them in our cooking.
But lately, over the past few nights my enthusiasm has waned. I haven’t been paying attention & now although both the Mint plants look like they’ll pull through my Basil looks decidedly weak & feeble.
I have pruned all three plants & cut back the majority of the affected leaves but I fear if I do that any more to the Basil I won’t have any plant left!
I’m also concerned I may now be over watering to compensate.
Any ideas for the poor Basil plant? Maybe if I just leave it alone it will sort itself out.
I really shouldn’t be left in charge of house plants!!
