Growing More Basil . . .

Growing more Basil from cuttings is easy and fun. Just take a few Basil cuttings (3″ to 4″) and place in a clear glass cup of water.

Change the water in the cup every 2 to 3 days, and in about a week, roots will start forming along the stems.
The ones shown in the photo are ready for planting.

Keeping Basil plants pruned, along with planting them deeply, result in sturdy and bushy plants.
Happy Gardening.
