Post #6758336

I have two Sweet Basil plants that are in the same container with a tomato plant and calendula(pot marigold).

I found black spots on the basil leaves. I was wondering if it is a fungal infection. But I also noticed some holes in a few of my tomato leaves. Both plants are healthy otherwise and my tomato is flowering and setting out fruit too.

I was wondering if it is OK to consume basil leaves that have black spots on it.

Additionally, is there any natural remedy to keep away bugs from my plants? I thought calendula would help but apparently it is not enough.
