I checked Nichols and it worked out to $15.50 for a plant with S&H .
DW dragged me down to the local nursery for some spinach starts Tuesday. They didn’t have any but they had just gotten in some Greek Columnar Basil so I snapped one up. It was only $2.99 for a good-sized plant.(Navlet’s if you’re looking for some locally.) Maybe fall is the best time to look for it. I’ll put it in a protected spot and hope to have fresh Basil all winter!

Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day; teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks.

I bought mine at 3.50 for a plant and for 1 plant shipping is 4.95. Of course 2 plants is 5.73 to ship etc.
