Who loves basil?
Basil is on top of many plants lists; the list of the easiest herbs to grow, the insect repellent plants list, the bees attracting plants list and, of course, it has so many uses in our kitchen! So what is there not to love about it?
Still, many people might get disappointed when their basil dies, as in the Gulf there are so many varieties and not all of them survive the summer.
In the video below, you will read all about the available varieties of basil in the Gulf, where to place it, what soil to use, care tips and how to face the most common pests.
