Re: How to Grow Basil

Great article, really enjoyed the information. I shall be out in the garden, taking some cuttings, very soon. I have always picked the leaves in the fall, washed and dried them then packed in bags and freeze. Works great for cooking, lovely color and flavor but you can't use as a garnish. I do the same thing with tarragon and it really does taste like fresh from the garden. Just cut off a chunk of the basil or tarragon and chop fine while still frozen.
