Every year I have a beautiful patio garden with pots of tomatoes and peas that grow like crazy. For some reason, I'm not successful at growing Basil. I've tried sun, part sun, shade, excellent soil (same that I use for all the other pots with great success) and it still turns black and shrivels up. What should I be doing?
