I've got a curry plant Helen. I'll try to remember to look at it on the weekend and see if it's still alive ... we transplanted it a while back and didn't look after it very well afterwards as we rarely use it!! They grow so quick (and large!) from a small cutting.

thanks for help will see if i can find latin name , it is 2 colour and varrigated leaves...anyone out there know the  latin name??

Comment by Andy Cambeis on August 14, 2013 at 7:45am

Hi Helen,

you are obvious after perennial spice.
I bought last year Ocimum gratissimum at Mitre10.
I can recommend it. It taste very similar to Ocimum basilicum.

I can't help you with the Oreganos without correct Latin names.
