How do I add a basil plant to my curbside order

Asked by Jackie August 7, 2020
1
Answer

If your store that you are purchasing the plant from is on the list of stores for curbside pickup, you would order as normal and designate the order as curbside pickup. Curbside Pickup is available only in those select stores daily until 6 p.m. (you can go online to see what stores have curbside pickup) Valid only at the specific store selected by customer when placing order and only for orders confirmed via Order Pickup Notification email or text. All of those options should be available when placing the order on line.

Despite new good potting soil, reasonable watering with drainage, moderate to partially-shaded sun, the plans just withered and shrank and look like boiled greens. Last year in the same pot with the same methods, the basil thrived and kept us supplied through November. I will try again as we depend out our caprese salads.
