How to Grow Sweet Basil
Basil loves the heat and prefers the warmer months to grow. Depending on your location it may be better to start the seeds in late spring to early summer. It can be continually planted throughout the summer. The seeds can be started indoors and then transplanted outside in the warmer months. If starting indoors choose a sunny and warm location. Basil seeds should be sown .5 cm deep in sterilized potting soil. The soil most be kept moist at all times. It’s important to have some air circulation in the area to avoid mold and fungus problems.
