Here's how I grow basil in the hot Temecula sun.  This paper umbrella shades the basil enough to protect it from hot burning rays.  All I add is water and plant food when needed.  Last week our temperatures soared to above 100 F plus, but my basil survived. Beautiful basil but in truth, we're not big basil eaters, although I have already made pesto from this crop.
