Why Make A Site About Basil?

Despite growing up and feeling like my brother and I were slave labor for my Dad’s weekend gardening, I learned at some point, that I really enjoy it. I find most aspects of gardening therapeutic and as I learn new things, I feel the need to share them. I didn’t always appreciate landscaping and growing my own herbs so I thought if I shared my experiences a bit, others could enjoy it as well.

Recently, my attention has turned to herb growing and this Growing Basil website was created to help people learn, grow, and harvest their own basil. You will find information for all levels of gardeners and learn how truly easy it is to grow basil.

If you are a gardening novice, this is a great place to start. But be warned, growing basil is a gateway plant and could become a full-fledged hobby if you aren’t careful.

The real star of this site though, is the basil herb itself. I hope you get the information you need to enjoy the health and cost savings rewards of this little plant. And don’t forget to enjoy the journey along the way — stop and smell the basil!
