The Q&A Archives: indoor basil plant

Question: i purchased a bonnie sweet basil plant in home depot and my question is how do i care for it because i live in high rise apartment. the basil already has the soil attaches, so do i place it in a pot how do i water it

Answer: Monica,

Plant it in a pot at least 1 gallon in size, a little larger is better. Water to wet the soil then allow it to dry to just slightly moist before watering again. Fertilize with a soluble plant food such as Miracle Gro at the low label rate every few weeks in spring to fall.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
