Curling Basil Leaves

Anonymous added on May 23, 2011 | Answered

My basil plant leaves are curling.  What am I doing wrong? I bought two nice looking plants and we have frequently been using the leaves. Pinching the stem off with leaves, just above other leaves. I don't keep them saturated, but moist soil. The plants are in a good sunlight location.

Try giving it a bit fertilizer. Curly leaves normally indicate the plant needs nutrients. But do not give too much as this can weaken the flavor.
