What are the pros? Easy, THE SMELL! pest free!
What are the cons? NONE!
By far one of the best and easiest plants to grow! I have multiple extra trays because it grew so well! The smell, even from seedlings, can be over powering and its an eye catcher once it gets growing! I've already run two batches of leaves through a dehydrator and they come out very well.
Fusarium wilt has wiped out my pepper crop, multiple varieties, but basil seems unaffected by it even when growing in the same garden as my peppers! there are a hand full of leaves on one plant that have brown spots on them, everything else is pristine.
I'll be growing this every year, both as potted plants to sell, fresh, and dehydrated leaves! Its a must have for any garden or even a window! Does well in pots! Probably the easiest to grow plant out there!
