garden, pt 3

the basil is having issues...

does anyone have any idea what's going on here? i googled "wilting basil" and all i get are references to either the soil being too dry or too wet. i know it's wet enough b/c the other herbs are flourishing. but perhaps the drainage on that side is too much/too little? should i remove the sick plant? does it look like part of it may revive? and of course: did i plant them too close to each other?

from the picture it looks like the basil is getting too much water. ?? but who really knows!

I would pull the basil out of the major container (since it's the only one not thriving) and plant it in a seperate pot. It will probably solve the problem!

I actually have no idea why it is wilting, but at least this way the basil won't influed how you are treating the plants that are thriving. There's nothing worse that trying to save a dying plant and killing two other's in the process.

hmmmmm... good feedback guys... i'm going to remove the (now dead - despite a few days of no watering) basil plant and move on from there.
