When should I introduce plant food?
I have plant food for herbs and vegetables. I have #SweetBasil growing from seeds. When should I introduce plant food to maximize growth?

You shouldn't need to fertilize your basil. They're pretty prolific growers already. (: Once they get a certain size they'll start growing flower buds. Pinch those off, don't let them flower(!), and every time you do that your plant will basically double it's output and will bush out in no time! My mom and I used to grow these absolutely MASSIVE bushes every summer in Oklahoma...
@WickedValkyrie wonderful advice! Thank you so so much!
Any time (:
