Ok, so I bought 2 very nice basil plants from the local home depot and grocery store. The HD one seemed to grow fine in my garden, but we had a bad & sudden freeze last week, and I think it's gone (brownish red in color, and looks dead). The other is inside, and has a number of leaves wilting, and doesn't seem to be taking off. I transplanted it from the cup they had it in, and noticed that the roots had essentially taken over the little pot, so I'm not sure if the transplant into good garden soil will take or not. I'm also not entirely sure how much to water.
Does anyone have any recommendations to get a good indoor herb garden going, and then perhaps a good outdoor summer one? Thanks for any help.
