I dont seem to be able to get Basil to grow well.  I have started them indoors and although they are now growing they are very low to the soil (and bushy) but not growing high enough to snip.

Any ideas? Would it be better outside?

How long you been growing it ? It's still a tad on the cold side, for basil. It likes very hot temperatures.

Not hardy here grannysal. Have you potted them on? Perhaps they're a bit overcrowded.They will take a little while to get going as it's still early here. Mine are only just starting to grow well as it's warmed up a bit

Fairygirl I think you have it - I think they are maybe a bit overcrowded and I thanks also to marshmellow - I think I am a bit early !
