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.

  1. I've got to plant my basil in my container with some other herbs--is this a good idea or should I just try to find room in my small garden area??And I just bought one plany from Lowes and they are $3.50 a pop there!! But they looked better than the other places

  2. You can plant them in small spaces as long as you feed them with liquid fertilizer. A container is fine if you do that. The herbs will suck the nutrients out. Basil flowers out so you need to constantly replace it. Seed starting will save you money and keep basil in your garden all summer long.
