Thanks! I have a nice basil plant but we are starting to get some weird spots on all of our herbs and I have no clue what to do about it.
What kind of wierd spots? What do they look like?
I know it's hot everywhere now, I live in the deep south and a lot of people don't grow herbs in the summer because they don't thrive. But I find if I harvest them regularly and water daily they do well. I don't fertilize or spray them, but do feed them diluted coffee and very ocassionally coffee grounds.
The only spots I've had were from slugs. Sprinkling sea salt around the base of the plant can help if it's slugs.
