    I bought basil at the store and the only kind they had was in those little packages. It looks good, just wimpy looking. Is there a way to perk it up? I thought I read a tip here a long time ago about it, but can't find it when I do a search.

    cut some off the stems and put the basil in a glass of water....or our Herb Keeper Once it has a drink it should perk-up a bit.
