Meet my new lovely plants!
It was hard to get a good picture with the sun coming through the window... but here they are clockwise starting at the top left: Cilantro, Basil, Italian Flat Leaf Parsley, Peppermint, Shamrock (don't remember official name), Jade, and Rosemary. Hello my lovelies! They aren't quite settled yet, I just stuck them in pots to figure out what goes where.
While I'm really excited to have a windowsill herb garden again... I am most excited about my shamrock plant. Did you know that at night, the leaves close up?
100% biodegradable bamboo by Rosso's International! They will last for 3 years indoors before breaking down (2 years outdoors). If you start plants in them indoors, you can plant the entire thing (plant with container) in the ground, which is supposed to be better for the roots anyway. If they happen to be thrown in the trash, they will decompose within 3-6 months. No nasty plastic. LOVE them! They come in all kinds of colors, I just really liked the brown. I should point out that yes, they are resting on plastic trays. *sigh* I don't like it, but you can bet I will keep those forever to be reused again and again.
