Basil is easy to grow as it easily adapts to different soil types and water conditions.
Basil thrives when using good quality soil with
rich organic matter. You can also purchase potting soil mix. The soil will remain moist and soft by
using a high quality potting soil, which will ensure proper root growth.
As always, the soil needs to be weed free before planting. Fertilizer
can be added once a month or you can use potting soil with a time
released fertilizer to encourage healthy growth.
Basil can be grown directly in the ground or in a pot. For Pots, ensure that there is adequate drainage at the bottom of the pot. Lining
the bottom of the pot with coarse gravel or small rocks will ensure
adequate drainage and allow the roots to grow freely. If growing
outside directly in the ground, ensure the soil is weed free and moist
