This has to be the best tutorial and article about basil I've read about. It's super funny in the beginning then it becomes seriously informative and gives you the best tips for growing this herb. I didn't know there was so many types but since I get use so many fresh herbs and pasta, I'll definitely need to grow my own.

This is one great tutorial because it tells eerything about the basil how it orginated, all the different types of basil, how to care for it to how to prune it with a great video to show this step to keep the basil growing which I was no where close to doing it right. Best information about growing basil so far. Anyone wanting togrow some read and watch this first.
