So my basil doesnt seem to be doing very well. I took a couple little sprouts out of the pot they were in and planted them in the ground next to my tomatoes. I assumed they would die because the roots were just so thin and they were not in little seed pots i could transplant. And guess what? They are doing fabulous. they are in the same soil as the potted ones. They are getting the same light. Why would they do that much better???
