Introduction: Grow Basil Easily at Home

Basil is used in many cooking recipes , so being able to grow some at home will allow you to have access to fresh basil for your cooking needs. Its a very small plant that takes minimal effort to grow.

Step 1: Use a Small Container That You Can Put in a Sunny Place

bigger containers will not work well while trying to grow the plant at first. The plant will eventually need to be transplanted depending on the starting container.

Step 2: Fill 3/4 of the Container With Soil

Step 3: Moisten the Soil

Step 4: Use 3-5 Basil Seeds

Step 5: Make Very Small Holes in Soil for the Seeds With a Toothpick

make sure the holes are not too deep.

Step 6: Place Seeds in Holes and Cover Lightly With Soil

Step 7: Place the Container in a Sunny and Warm Location

The plant doesn't need a lot of sunlight to grow but from my experience it will speed up the process by having a sunny location . Lightly water the plant every 1-2 days.

Step 8: This Is My Progress of a Little More Than 2 Weeks

I've gotta try growing some from seed. The basil plants for sale around here are kind of expensive. Thanks for sharing!

You should! it is very easy, you can plant more than basil. Tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers too ! I planted mine few weeks ago, but there is still time.
