I just can't seem to get the basil to grow well. I have tried 3 plants, 2 are Nuphar var. and the other is sweet basil. Nuphar is in the ground while the other is in a pot. What usually happens is the plant starts out healthy then after a little while the leaves droop and start to look pale or slightly yellowish. I try not to overwater cause I killed a basil plant already like this. For the one in the pot I move it around. Sometimes I put it in full sun, other times I put it in partial shade.
They seem to be drooping, changing colors, and some leaves getting burnt. That is about all they are doing. Could someone tell me the proper amount of watering them as well? I think sometimes my initial problem starts with overwatering. I am so afraid of over watering so I try to give them lots of sun, then that seems to make matters worse. Thx
