I was at the grocery market looking for fresh basil to make pesto. All the packets looked limp. Then i found this plant i figured it's allot fresher and well be good when im ready to make my pesto. Any tips to keep this plant producing more basil. Is there a certain way to trim it? #organic #basil #herbs

Pull or snip leaves off for use! It will produce more and grow bushier. Make sure it has good sunshine! Are you keeping this indoors or outside in summer? It will need a bigger pot to grow stronger and bigger! Best wishes yummy

Very welcome Nikki . you can grow herbs inside if you make a shelf and then hang a growlight over it. So you can grow a few dif herbs you like a lot.
