My basil needs help

PS3220February 16, 2013

This is the 3rd time I tried to plant basil. Everyone told me how easy they are. But mine always end up with tinny red bugs all over and died eventually. A friend of mine told me to wash the leaves with soap water, it didn't seem to work.

Are you growing it indoors or outdoors?

And where are you? The zone might make a difference. Sounds like spider mites - are you trying to grow it indoors?
