Basil is easy to grow in the garden and if you harvest it right, it will continue to provide fresh leaves for seasoning (and pesto!) for months at a time. Basil is an easy one to add to your vegetable garden!
If you are growing your lavender in pots, cover the bottom two inches with Styrofoam peanuts or gravel. This will help make draining easier so the lavender does not become diseased or damaged. Plant one lavender per pot and keep it at the center.
