First time successful growing Basil From seed. I tried last spring and nothing at all came up. This summer I started seeds in reused veggie cell flats and I was successful getting seedlings.

My do they grow slowly and stay small. Now that I have planted them out in big pots I am hoping they start to grow quickly.
