I do not have good luck bringing herbs into my house during the winter. I have tried but get those little white mites so I have given up on that.
I guess I will go to a local nursery and get some advice on natural products that might boost plant growth.
Thanks for your help though.
Hmm. I guess I would keep snipping leaves and not worry about looks. I've grown sweet, Thai, lemon, purple, globe basil, along with others, and they've all survived a snipping.
12 inch sides on your planter may be better, you could stick some planks around it to make it deeper.
