Breaking News ! Whizzes in the kitchen will know that sometimes dried herbs just won't cut it. When it comes to adding some extra pzazz to a home-cooked meal, there's nothing quite like a sprinkle of fresh basil, parsley or thyme to finish off your dish. For many people, the go-to place to grab some fresh herbs is the fruit and veg aisle at supermarket. As well as fresh cut and bunched herbs, shops including Tesco, Asda, Morrisons and Sainsbury's also offer 'living' herb plant pots that you can purchase for as little as £1. The life expectancy of a living plant pot is marked at 2+ days - but most home cooks will know that keeping them alive for longer than a week or two is rather optimistic. However, on Twitter, green-thumbed social media users are revealing pictures of their cheap, supermarket herb plant transformations - and some are ridiculously impressive.

"To anyone who has ever killed a supermarket herb plant: I'm afraid yours died so that our basil overlord could reign supreme." Directing a tweet to Morrisons, Oliver joked: "Morrisons, we'll invoice you for our split of all profits you make from living basil from now on. "50/50 sounds good to me." His original tweet received more than 60k likes within 24 hours and gained thousands of retweets and quote tweets. Lisa Holdsworth (@WorkWithWords) replied: "I've never been so jealous in my life.

. User @pagerorpump replied, writing: "My mum's one is huge. "It's dense and tall! Took about three months to get to this [pictured] and now it's pesto and basil oil galore." And user @Lieblingstigga tweeted a picture of their massive, two-year-old basil plant, writing: "Greetings from our basil in its 2nd year (who is no longer allowed to grow and constantly cut back)." But while many joined in with the digital herb show and tell, others took the time to ask for top tips and advice. User @joannuski shared a picture of her plant that was in need of a bit of TLC, asking: "What's your secret?" And user @fgoodway kindly replied with a solution: "Split it! "The secret is you've got too many plants in one pot - that's why all supermarket basils look unbelievably lush and yet die off quickly. "Their beauty is two stems max in a 5 litre pot." And some users' herbs grew so big, they had to be transferred into the garden. User @milkygamerguts tweeted her herb bush, writing: "Basil, Parsley and Thyme in the back, all store bought lil plants. "I grew the oregano from seed this year though. "I'm hoping to plant more oregano next spring and get it to flower, for the bees Honeybee." And for all supermarket herb owners who are left with only a sad-looking stump within a few weeks, @YellsOnPolitics advised: "Prune from the tips! "You'll get new branches from the topmost set of leaves."
