I had Basil in my garden that I dug up a couple of weeks ago and put in a pot. I was thinking that it would have some time to get "settled" before I have to bring it in. That brings me to my question. How cold can it take it outside? (Keeping in mind, it's in a pot, not the ground so it won't be able to take it as low.)
For all I know, I'm wasting my time and it will never make it in the house, but I never like to give in w/o a fight. I just started making my own pesto and I like it.
Either way, I did NOT like the way my kitchen smelled when I tried to bring my basil in. So, I will now grow it in the summer and either dry the leaves or make pesto and freeze it. No fresh basil in the house for me!
