I planted my basil in my perennial garden and something is into it because it has lots of holes in the leaves. None of the other herbs have been affected like this.

Tiny holes such as that could be caused by flea beetles. They can be excluded by using a summer weight row cover. You could also try a repellent such as a garlic or neem based spray. Since this is a food plant be sure to read and follow the label instructions carefully.
