Q.Is My Basil Plant Okay?
I have been taking care of my basil plant for quite some time but I noticed that the bottom stems are wooding. Every time I look it up it either says it’s maturing or has root rot. But the wooding is climbing up the stem and some of the bottom leaves are turning a really light green and then falling off. Is this normal? One of the pictures I took and few weeks ago and the other I took today. The brown is crawling up the stem. I also tried to take I picture of a leaf that is much light of a color than the rest.

This is the normal progression for the shrub. Continue topping it for more production, and to keep the flowers off.
They appreciate feeding, on occasion, as well.
