    @City Girl Garden. I grow my basil in large 5 gallon containers. I drilled a few holes in the bottom for air, use Miracle Grow for the soil, put in a sunny location, don't let the soil dry out completely and it has given me a great crop.

    I noticed that you seem to have good luck growing basil. Any tips? Mine seems to be slow growing. I have tried planting in the beds this year, but I am not having any luck with it. It gets about 3 to 4 inches tall and just seems to wilt. Hope your garden is doing great this Spring!
