Today’s herb growing update: the rocket seems to be struggling. Lots of its long stalks taper at the soil to be so thin they just fall out. We think it might be too crowded. It’s also growing new leaves on the same stalks for the first time! Still nothing from the basil or chives.

We bought a planter today, ready to start moving them to their own pots. The rocket seems ready to have more space. Apparently moving them can be hard on the plants so we’ve given them water to boost their strength before we attempt a move. Fingers crossed we don’t kill any of them!

(Those bits of plastic in front of the planter were broken off it when we opened the box. Quality 👌)
