We have a plot at our church's community garden. The plot had Cinnamon Basil all over it. We dug up all of it, but one small plant. Now, two weeks later, it is taking over our garden where we have vegetables and herbs planted. The church doesn't allow us to use any pesticide to kill basil, unless it's organic. What do we use to get rid of the basil that is taking over? Thanks for your help.
Cinnamon Basil Is Over Taking Our Garden

Cinnamon basil has shallow roots so it should be relatively easy to hand pull, which is what I recommend you do in this case.
Shelley: thanks for responding. We have pulled & pulled the basil out by the roots, but it just keeps coming back. What else can I do?
