How to grow Basil in a home made propagator

Basil and home made propagator

My coriander and parsley seedlings are coming along nicely but my basil is in short supply! So I have decided to plant some more. As I want to grow a nice amount of Basil and grow it quickly I will have to use a propagator. Since I haven’t got a propagator I’ve create my own (well, the next best thing!). All you have to do to make your own home made propagator for your Basil is to plant the seeds in a seed tray of good draining compost. Once you have watered well you then put the tray inside a plastic bag and tie it tightly. The seed should germinate in about 12 days! Simple!

    The trick is not to put basil in the fridge. Pick it when you are using it for best results but it shouldn’t be put in the fridge as it will blacken.

    I think basil is a little more difficult to grow in my experience. Also, it doesn’t seem to last very long either. When I take clippings and place them in the fridge, the basil goes black. Does anyone else have this problem?
