After fighting to get my basil seeds to grow, I'm officially giving up. I'll go buy a plant, but after two months of watering, re-seeding, feeding, and watering some more, I still have nothing to show for it. I had a couple seeds try to grow, but they never got any bigger than teeny tiny little sprouts.
I've always heard basil is finicky if you start it from seed, but I didn't know just how finicky. Now I know and I can save my $1.50 (that I spent on seeds) and put it towards an actual plant. Lesson learned.
On the flip side, everything else that I planted is still doing fine! So hooray!
