A basket of kitchen herbs is a great gift for an ardent home cook. Follow this step-by-step guide to making a gift that’ll keep on giving for years…
- Line a basket with a sheet of plastic. Punch in a few holes to allow for drainage.
- Fill with potting soil or a herb potting mix.
- We suggest violas (to pretty up a salad), Italian parsley (to flavour a variety of dishes), dill (it adds great flavour to fish dishes), coriander (a must for curries), rosemary (perfect for Sunday’s roast lamb), and peppery rocket (to add to salads).
- Take care not to over water, and keep in a sunny spot.
