How would I keep Asian blue basil growing in winter. Con one cover the plants with light weight fabric over night ? I make pesto to sell and need this basil in winter once the Holy basil season ends. Regards and thanks Merle P.S. selling only small quantities at a weekly market day in very small town

Moist plants have a life cycle. Plants generally have a temperature range they grow in.
