Wilted Basil

We just bought it home from the nursery and it looks like it is dying. One branch actually wilted completely. I haven't watered it. Help!!!

Possible Causes for Basil Wilting
by: Dan

Basil likes to be damp but not saturated. Check to see if the pot is too wet or too dry. Also, do you have it in direct sunlight on a window sill and has it been particularly hot? Pull it out as you might be "over-sunning" it. So, make sure the soil is moist and make sure that you are not frying it with too much sun. Hope that help!
