Growing Herbs

The last post reminded me to ask this incredibly knowledgable group two questions that have been frustrating me.

First, I've planted all my herbs for the summer. Most are doing well, especially the cilantro, except for the basil. Many of the leaves have holes in them, although I have found no actual bugs. These leaves quickly turn green/brown and ugly looking. Does anyone know what this could be and how I might remedy it?

Second, I have not been able to find "mint" plants in any store. I've found spearmint, peppermint, and even pineapple mint. Are any of these the same? I think I just want standard mint. Do I keep looking?

Any help would be very appreciated. Thanks. -Bill.
