The two plants always under produce compared to a properly spaced plant. Peppers are the opposite. They do great paired up. The companion basil is a good idea. Chop them down frequently.
Good luck with your new container venture. Report back on you sip's..
I'm also going to have peppers growing, so its nice to know they like company. I love basil, and lots of other herbs. I have 1 gal pots reserved just for the different herbs I want to start.
Anyone know where I can get true French tarragon? It doesn't seed so you need to get a off shoot. Most garden centers only have russian variety
