Care of basil plants

Zone Crown City, Ohio | Anonymous added on August 29, 2018 | Answered

I have a basil plant that has been growing well for about 2 months, without any problems. Recently it has developed dark spots on the leaves that eventually turn into holes in the leaves. Can you tell me what the cause is & what can be done about it. I have been using the leaves of this plant for seasoning foods.
