Basil plant has wilted.


My basil plant has wilted, after planting basil pot plant in garden with potting mix and seasol garden treatment. The plant in full sun and has suffered. I've been watering daily as dries quickly.

Can i replant in shade to save it? And should/can I plant it in soil directly, ie. out of the pot?

Answer: Hi Nicholas,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

It’s a good idea to plant new seedlings in a morning sun only location till it’s established, either in a pot or in the ground. You can add some liquid fertiliser to help, Try Dynamic Lifter Liquid Concentrate. It’s certified for use in organic gardens and contains seaweed, blood&bone and fish meal to help developing new roots and restoring healthy growth. Click here for more info:

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
