I got some seedling basil about five days ago from the local store, and it looked perfectly healthy. Re-planted it in a bigger pot and watered it and it's outside in my small container garden on my apartment balcony.
It did okay for about two days, then I began to notice holes in the leaves.
Now some of the leaves are browning and curling up.
Firstly, what should I do about this? None of my oregano, strawberry plants or flowers seem to be affected by any sort of bugs.
Secondly, can I still pluck off the leaves and make a pesto sauce with them? Will this shock the plant and or could it be good for it to get them off. Also, will it hurt me to eat them.
