Garlic is strictly an outdoor plant. It needs 3-4 months of cool or cold weather in order to grow well. If you'd like to grow something indoors, garlic chives will grow on a sunny windowsill. It tastes a little like garlic. You can repot your basil when the roots begin growing out of the drainage holes of the container, or if the pot looks way too small for the size of the top of the plant. Enjoy your indoor garden.
