    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) (Posted on 2/25/2017)
