I planted too much basil. Like, way too much. I just read the back of my seed packet and it said only 3 plants per 12 inch planter. Soooo, I have some thinning to do, no?
So, what to do with all those perfectly good Basil seedlings? Why not pot them and give them away as Hostess Gifts, or for whatever; like, maybe for a housesitter or a new neighbor. The possibilities are endless. I mean, who doesn’t like Basil?
IKEA has 4” ceramic pots for 49 cents. 49 CENTS! And they’re cute. I bought 8.
Then I filled them with potting soil,
and transplanted the basil seedlings.
Then I used my Minimalist Garden Markers to label them and include care instructions.
Voila! Cheap, easy, memorable gifts to give!
