Sign up for the Basil Challenge


What will I learn in 8 weeks?

When you receive your basil seed kit, we will send you weekly tips via email about how to care and harvest your basil. In the meantime, Rustie Lee will show you how to make tasty, easy basil recipes that you can impress your friends and family with.

Along the way, there will be a wellbeing check-in to measure your progress including prize giveaways, opportunities for you to share your progress pictures and ways to use your newfound skills to help in your community!

Will I have to pay?

No! You will need to gather your own ingredients and equipment butt he exclusive content is free to access.

Will Together TV supply compost, posts and recipe ingredients?

We will offer advice on where to find any supplies you might need and often you can use things lying around the house. An empty butter tub is a great pot to sow your seed in (just make sure you make a drainage hole in it)!

What's so special about this challenge?

Together TV wants you to grow basil and learn recipes to cook from scratch to boost your wellbeing, connect with your community and contribute to a greener planet. We will be guiding first time gardeners and cooks every step of the way with weekly emails. We want you and your basil to grow this year.

Why do you need my phone number?

Over the 8 weeks we will be helping you care for your basil and remind you of your shopping lists. We found the best way to remind you is by text or Whatsapp. The messages we send will be free to receive. You can always opt out of texts or let us know if you want to activate them.

What are the terms and conditions?

You have to be over 18 and a resident in the UK to join the green challenge. You can find the full terms and conditions on our website.

I'm under 18, but I want to join. Is there a way?

Due to our terms and conditions, you cannot join on your own, why not ask someone over 18 to enter and join along with them!

When is the deadline to join?

There is no deadline, but what are you waiting for?

I don't have an email address. Can I still join?

The Basil Challenge is best experienced with the weekly emails where Rustie's exclusive videos are shared as well as links to more tasty recipes and tips. Please contact our team by phone to discuss possibilties of joining without an email address.
