What garden is complete without basil? To keep plants producing leaves, pinch off the top growth, especially when buds form. However, to create good karma in the garden, allow to flower at some point for your wildlife. So, even if basil is not your favorite in the kitchen, grow some plants and allow to flower--pollinators and beneficial insects LOVE basil. 3" peat pot, 4-packs, or 4 variety pack.
