Sow seed outdoors in mid-to-late May then every two weeks through August, or start them inside and transplant after the danger of frost has passed. Basil can be grown indoors on a sunny window or under lights during the winter. Indoor Basil plants are not long lived, nor do they produce significantly. Indoor plants tend to be lanky and produce smaller leaves. Outdoors, Basil is a low-maintenance plant and prolific - all you need to do is provide water when necessary. Lightly feed with a general purpose fertilizer as too much can adversely affect the production of the essential oils responsible for flavour and aroma. Basil plants are grown from their leaves and flower clusters.
