For now, we've managed to pot our basil plant, but we ran out of compost. The next few days we will be getting more compost and repotting a few more of our herbs into these small planters.

Repotting can be traumatic for plant so we will be using a one time dose of a homeopathic mix which includes Arnica, Calendula, Dulcamara, Gelsemium and Nux Vomica to help transition the plant into its new home!
