@jessy2681 pinch off any flowers and you'll get more growth. I cook all the time with mine. Have fun.

Basil has a strong pleasant fragrance. Pesto sauce is made with it and it's yummy😍.

If you go to a supermarket, at the fruit /veggie area, you will see Basil (and many other herbs), in little pots. Just brush the back of your fingers gently against them and you will smell and be able to identify them by their labels. Do this each time you go and it won't be long before you "know"... 😊

I see 2 kids. Bring them and let them smell too. Garden centers are even better as they often carry exotic herbs too

If you pinch it, it will get more bushy. Pinch the glowers
