Answer: Hi Gill,
Basil likes a warm sunny position preferably without a saucer underneath the pot. They are prone to leaf spot so water early in the morning. It is an annual plant and will not grow during the cooler winter months. Sometimes too much water can also cause a browning of the leaf edges.
