I am starting my garden, have two different Rosemary plants & a Basil. Does anyone know anything about planting Basil? Because someone told me to use a pot vs planting in the ground…
it doesn’t matter at all where you decide to plant. there’s just advantages and disadvantages. in ground means it’s not mobile, but it can also have access to nutrients that’s already in the soil. in a container, it will eventually run out of nutrients, so you’ll have to add more as you go.
containers can get root bound, making transpotting an extra chore. but it does offer more safety towards bugs.
rosemary and basil requires different amounts of water. your rosemary should get water once, and rarely, twice a week. your basil, probably 2-2.5 times.
