You Know You’re a Gardener… (#4 Thai Basil)

You know you’re a gardener when you take the leftover Thai Basil sprigs from pho* home to root.**

pho* = Vietnamese noodle soup served with bean sprouts, lime and Thai Basil on the side.

Unusual Coleus with Three Leaves per Node

As I was planting my Coleus into pots on Sunday, I noticed that two of my Coleus were a little unusual. Instead of the usual two leaves per node, these had three leaves per node. Hmmm? Mutants?

One was a ‘Dark Star (Hybrid)’ that grew from seed…

…the other was ‘Velvet Lime’ cutting from last year.
