Can't get Basil to grow in Phoenix?
I have tried now for 3 years to grow Basil. Container, sun, shade. Indoors, outdoors. What am I doing wrong? I just went to the store again and bought both globe and sweet basil plants. I'm going to give it another shot. Basil is my absolute most favorite mint. If I could grow an acre of basil I'd be happy!
My plan-some in the sun garden, some in the partial covered herb garden (filtered sun), some in a container that can go in and out of the house.
I know it's not traditionally planted in end of October but my parent's neighbors seem to have success doing this in Phoenix. Is there anybody else in a similar climate that can help me? Or any other that can give me help with my basil woes??
Maybe I need to use something besides potting soil in my containers?
I'd really like to fill my freezer with pesto someday!
