Grow Basil from Basil

I cut most of the basil for drying last month, but I also clipped a few stems and put them in water to have fresh basil for cooking and salads. It’s always a way to grow new plants. After a month, roots are growing and I will pot this up over the weekend. Basil needs a lot of light to be happy, and that’s a challenge indoors during the dark months. A grow light can help.

Our drastically cooler temperatures next week will make the outdoor basil unhappy. Harvest this weekend.
