It sounds to me like they are root bound and the stunted growth is because the roots can't get more of what they need.Many herbs grow well in pots, Basil needs room, heat, moist soil and rich soil. The biggest, baddest Basil I ever grew was in a HUGE 2 gallon recycled tree pot in my mother's glass greenhouse in a VERY HOT summer and it was fertilized twice a week and watered two or three times a day. It was 5 feet tall and about the same around.I have never repeated that, even with the same packet of seed the following year.Your best bet is to start more from seed in another pot and grow in in succession through the year.
