Q.Basil Flowered

Anonymous added on October 5, 2011 | Answered

My basil in the garden has flowered and last week we had a frost so now the leaves are dark brown. Is it still useable? Can I propagate it to bring indoors? Do I use a cutting or take seeds from flowers?

Cut the brown leaves off as these are no longer any good. Here is information on propagating these plants: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/herbs/basil/propagating-basil.htm
