Choose a sunny garden spot, handy container or indoor herbal planter for basil. Most varieties do not require much room. This green leafy plant is usually grown as an annual as it is sensitive to cold. Most gardeners plant basil seeds, cuttings or transplants in spring when the ground warms. Basil needs sun and well-drained soil. It grows well as a companion plant in a vegetable garden, in mixed herb planters and in hanging baskets. Kitchen gardeners often keep a basil container in a sunny window. Leaves can be pinched off for a quick toss into tomato dishes or other recipes.
