Medium_screenshot_20190409-104048_gallery My basil has become brown in colour

Over the past 2 months I've noticed my Basil has become brown in colour and some leaves have holes as well.

I have been using Yates Nature way and PowerFeed tomatoes and vegetables however this has not cured the disease.

Do I have to just dispose of it and plant a new batch?

Answer: Hi Eddy,
Thank you for contacting Yates.
Look like the plant is infected by fungal disease. The product you need to apply is Yates Leaf Curl Copper Fungicide Spray. You can see a picture of the product using the below link.

Also, make sure the plant is growing in a full sun location and avoid any overhead watering to improve air circulation.
Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Louise
