Folks tell me basil is about as easy as breathing. I have yet to see evidence that justifies that. My plants are wilting and dropping leaves. No browning or streaking, just yellow then fall off. Any hints? Do they just like it blazing hot, in which case Canada is kind of lacking right now?
The closest I can narrow it down to is overwatering in heavy soil, stifling growth. Should I lose the watering ambition and just let it dry out some?
