Good things take time and care
1. Why is my herb dying?
Always look for the early signs of any insect/fungal/ any other infections. Spay appropriate fungicides or pesticides as soon as any symptoms of such diseases are spotted. Watch out for snails and slugs.
2. Why is my herb not growing?
Herbs are cool season plants. They struggle to grow in hot climatic situations. Also waterlogging in the soil is also harmful to plants. Use well drained potting soil for growing your herbs.
3. Which type of basil is best for pesto?
The Italians are onto a good thing, with basil varieties such as the classic 'Genovese' a staple of real, home cooking. Fragrant, near-glossy dark-green leaves make the best pesto, but look out too for red and crinkle-leaved varieties and the bushy Greek basil, whose tiny leaves pack a tasty punch.
All the plant gossip, through the grapevine. Pun intended
Italian basil has been used for centuries for better digestion, skin benefits, and diabets manageement. Basil was also believed to be instrumental in fighting depression and it supports liver function and detoxifies the body.
Apart from its distinctive taste, the basil is rich in beta carotene, Vitamin A, Calcium and manganese. Basil also supplies beneficial plant compounds that have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and other health properties
1.It is believed that basil has origins in India, but the herb has been cultivated for over 5,000 with its reach spreading to all corners of the globe.
2.It was used as an antidote for snake bites, and was believed to give strength during religious fasting.

Quality of the seeds are great!
We are about 2 months in and they are ready to harvest. Very pleased.
Nice to see prompt reviews which helped me get 2 packets for myself just to check out & guess what,I was not at all disappointed , nice germination , got my first set of leafs in a week, my daughter njoys garnishing her drinks and food with its fresh leaves.
I am giving 5 star rating as till now I am satisfied with the services provided by this site. Now coming to review on basil seeds. For me they are sprouting and then seem to wither. Can't understand why. I am from Delhi region. Does basil grow there? I read that most herbs are from Mediterranean region. I notice that during night the young seedlings bend over. It seems like as if they are rotting from the base. I am guessing what can be the possible reason - cold temperature, dampening ( I am doing my best not to over water), infection or seed quality (but if they germinate then seeds should be okay)
Best and easy to grow herb at home. I am very happy as almost 80% seeds germinated.

Water regularly – basil likes to stay moist and requires approximately 1 inch of water every week. Water deeply at least once a week to keep roots growing deep and the soil moist. Basil growing in containers will need more frequent watering.
Overwatered basil will show signs of wilting. You might also observe leaves turning yellow or dark brown, and this could be dangerous. If you suspect you're overwatering your basil, the first thing to do is inspect the roots of your plant.
Let's pass it on cleaner, better, and greener.
