The Q&A Archives: Do You Have Any Tips On Growing Basil Indoors

Question: do you any tips on the ways to grow basil indoors.

Answer: Basil can be started from seed or purchased as a small plant. It does well in a very bright sunny window. Fertilize occasionally with a water soluble fertilizer according to the label directions. Snip the basil frequently to encourage it to grow bushier. This plant is an annual and will not be terribly long lived, so plan on replacing it every few months, especially if you harvest from it often. Seed is easy to start.
