This video shows you a strategy for seed starting basil indoors. That part isn't too exciting. What I really wanted to convey is that there are dozens of different kinds of basil you can grow in your garden. You don't need to do this indoors under grow-lights either. A sunny window or an outdoor step will work just fine.

You can save a lot of money by starting basil seeds in trays and you can grow all kinds of varieties. Basil plants need to be continually replaced in the garden. If you are buying plants at $3 a pop, you are spending too much. For about $15 or $20 you can seed start basil and try out different varieties. And you can keep basil in your garden all season long. Starting seeds in trays, lets you experiment and try new varieties of herbs and vegetables.
