Q.Basil Has Some Tan Spots

Anonymous added on April 30, 2011 | Answered

I just planted some small basil plants in my raised bed and also a small pot. I noticed some of the leaves in both spots are starting to turn tan/brown. Is this too much sun? Not enough water? Please let me know so that I can transfer them if need be, while they are still young.
