my basil is about 15 inches high & covered in flowers..I have picked all I can use for now…so what now.

Should I just leave the basil in the garden as is,cut it back, or pull it out?

I do not know how to show an example with pictures as I am not very computer literate ?

You should cut it back. I never let my basil plants flower. You can dry extra basil for later use. These articles should help [1]
