* Growing basil at home is also possible. It is better to start growing this plant in the spring, using boxes or pots. Basil needs nutritious and light soil with the addition of peat. The most suitable temperature for growing is +25°C. Basil should be grown on a sunny windowsill. If you want to get a beautiful, spreading bush, then you should pin the top of the bush.
Since basil does not like excessive moisture, it needs to be watered only when the soil begins to dry out. It is better to water in the morning.
Basil grown on a windowsill is less prone to disease than that grown in a garden bed, however, if you notice “sick” stems, you should remove them so that they do not infect the rest of the plants. Never pick off all the greens (especially at the root of the plant), but simply pinch off individual leaves as needed.
