Growing basil in a greenhouse or in a shed is often considered a risky option.
It is a lot easier to manage indoors with a good ventilation system and a well-maintained garden and will not damage the environment as well as a greenhouse, according to the UK Garden Industry Association.
However, when it comes to growing basil indoors, the risks are higher, with growing basil outdoors can lead to soil problems and water infiltration.
So if growing basil is your priority, we have the advice below.
How much basil can I grow indoors?
The number of plants to grow indoors depends on the size of the area you want to grow the basil.
A large house can get you through a growing season in less than two years.
However if you want a smaller space and want to increase the variety of plants, a greenhouse can be a better choice.
A greenhouse can allow you to grow more plants without worrying about soil problems or water infiltration, according the UK Growers Association.
But there are pros and cons to growing plants indoors.
In order to achieve a better yield, you will need to be diligent in keeping the soil in good condition.
The most important thing to do is to use a soil test kit that contains a pH test, soil nutrient, water, light and temperature.
You can then test the soil to find out if it has the correct pH.
It can be as simple as adding water to the soil or adding fertilizer and it will give you a result in about one month.
You will need this information to make sure the soil is ready for planting.
However once the soil has been tested, you should remove it from the greenhouse and give it a thorough check-up.
You need to do this to ensure that the soil quality is correct.
The next step is to put in a barrier around the greenhouse.
This is a structure that you can place over the greenhouse to prevent the growing of plants.
A barrier will allow the plants to spread and take up more space.
You may have to put down some plant material to ensure the plant is not growing too fast.
Once the plants are established, you can remove the barrier and plant the new plants.
However, keep in mind that once the barrier is removed, the plants will need at least a month to establish.
So how long should I wait to plant basil?
It depends on how many plants you have in the greenhouse before you start the season.
If you have one plant per greenhouse then you will have a period of two months to start the first season.
This means you should wait at least two months for your first basil plant to be established.
The other option is to start planting basil plants indoors and keep the first one in the garden for two months.
However this may not be the best choice for those who are planning to grow many plants.
If a plant grows well in a small area, then it is more likely to thrive.
If you have more than one plant, then you should not wait too long for the first basil to be planted.
If the first plant has a bad root system, it may need a root crown.
You will need a few hours to do the planting, which will be done by a pest control agent.
You should be able to plant one basil plant per month at the start of the growing season.
But be careful not to overplant the plant as this can lead the basil to grow too fast and not grow to its full height.
You can also plant basil indoors if you have space.
But it is best to plant the basil in pots, which is easier to maintain and is also easier to weed.
There is no set rule to what size pot you should use for basil.
However the easiest way to grow one basil is to grow a basil plant in a 1-3 ft. by 1-1/2 ft. pot.
This will give the basil plenty of room to spread.
The 2-1-2 inch pot is the ideal size for basil, which can grow up to 2 metres tall.
