Ok, Burpee. You have redeemed yourself! I wrote about how I got this cool herb garden kit and hoped for the best. I had a bad time trying to grow herbs from seed. Not anymore! Feast your eyes on this! Finally, Greek Oregano, Italian Parsley, Genovese Basil, and Chives at my fingertips!! The basil grew first and so fast, it got big in no time. Genovese Basil, you are my new love! Look how much bigger it is than the other herbs! Wow! I think what did the trick was this peat moss soil mixture that came with this kit. It was a perfect mixture for these seeds to germinate. Thanks Burpee for coming through this time and germinating, I'm sorry I was so mad at you at the beginning of the season! Oh, and get this, I was looking at the Burpee website, and this is what they say about the container. "The biodegradable oval container is made from compressed plant material (rice hulls) and decomposes within 36 months or less when discarded." Wow, now that is cool!
