How to care for Basil


Pinch out flowerheads as they appear to keep the leaves growing and to encourage bushy growth. Cut back after flowering. Water regularly during summer. Morning is the best time to water the plants as they do not like having wet roots overnight. Basil are annual plants, but they can be brought indoors in autumn when it gets cooler to have a supply of leaves during winter.
