Common Problems:

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.
