Growing recommendations

Basil likes hot weather, ample water and good soil. Ideally, seed basil indoors and transplant it to the garden in the late spring to mid-summer. Pinching the growing tips will encourage the plant to branch out and grow leaves instead of sending out flower heads. Basil grows well in containers.
