Hi guys just wondering can you grow Basil all year round if I plant the basil in the ground when it cools down again for winter will it come back or should I keep it in pots in the winter months undercover and replant again in med September.

My Basil has grown all year round in Melbourne as I gave it protection from the wintery frost.

Ask around and see if you get some perennial basil. It grows all year.
