no it did not say that...they were grown by North Shore Living Herbs, they included a website www.livingherbs.com, and recommend viewing it for recipes & info, BUT when I try to get on it, I get a message stating that I dont have permission to view the webpage! Go figure

Just eat it now....hahaha..

You paid for plastic, lots of plastic and some roots.

It wouldn't be hydroponic since there is dirt involved. Hydroponic is usually just plants grown in hopped up water, which is why they are so futuristic. No earth required.

I asked because of this question:
[QUOTE-marigene]
I don't think it will grow in soil as it has been in water for a long time; they have become adapted to the water and don't do well in soil, the roots are very fragile. I have kept them for several weeks in a glass of water.[/QUOTE]

As a side venture where I used to work they grew hydroponic tomatoes and such so I'm very familiar with the process. I didn't know if marigene knew something the rest of us didn't.

If you have any sort of garden, pots on porch count, Basil loves to grow with tomatos. (or is it tomatoes?)
