Our average temp right now is about 55 with quite a bit of rain. Should I put it out?

I think it is too wet. I just pulled it out because I saw the edges of the leaves closest to the bottom are now black. I think I'll put it in a pot on the patio and see what happens.

Is it working? My basil transplants are yellowing, too. I might just get new starts for later this month.

No. It's not doing well at all. I fear it has little time left. I bought some seeds today. I'm going to try again but have not had a lot of luck with basil in the past. Have you?

Only inside or in potting soil/planters. I tried to add it to my herb patch this year. Looking at the dying little plants makes me cringe inside.

Pretty sure it is Fusarium in my case. My Early Girls are yellowing.

Sorry about your Basil, hope your seeds grow fast & healthy.
