Basil Roots

I rooted some sweet basil clippings by sticking them in a glass of water. It worked better for basil than it did for mint. You can grow regular sweet basil inside and it’ll be fine. But at least here, if you put it outside, it succumbs to Basil Downy Mildew, a plant disease first seen in Florida in 2008. You’ll need Downy Mildew Resistant basil seeds if you want to grow basil outside in a humid place like Ohio, or they’ll just grow mildew, and you can’t eat them.
