Photo of the day – Hibernating herb

Proving that you can grow warm weather plants over the winter. My basil plant spends every night snuggled up in the airing cupboard. It gets 6 hours of sunlight (well, light) every day.

The trick is to ensure the basil germinates before the really cold and dark days. I made sure that the seeds were kept at or above 16 degrees C to help germination.
