    If you can't grow basil, you just can't grow anything.

    They both like sun but basil more so. No special soil needs, just a nice compost mix. Water a little everyday. Plant shit loads of it a few days apart and you'll have pesto for days. The plants can be harvested a few leaves at a time but they go to seed pretty quick.

    Parsley reseeds itself really well and a few plants should be able to keep you going most all year.
