Basil, why won't you grow for me?
During the past two years we surmised that basil didn't do well in our herb garden due to lack of sunlight. This year, we put our heads together and decided to try a potted mini herb garden in one of our sunnier spots. So far all the herbs are happy, except for two varieties of basil. Why? I don't understand.
And then to make me feel even more deficient, I find this on the web:
"Growing Basil is a good starter herb for novice gardeners as it is easy to grow, as long as it’s kept warm, watered and sheltered."
