Basils make superb container plants and need about two gallons of
soil per season.
Basils grown in containers should be fertilized with an organic fertilizer
Allowing enough space for each plant and fertilizing
regularly will provide the optimum amount of growth. Flowers should be kept
cut back. If you have a long growing season, consider a second start of
basil about six weeks after your first crop goes in.
It takes a lot of Sweet
Basil to make our favorite pesto,
but it is definitely worth it!
