lemon basil quick question

ezzirah011(7a)May 14, 2010

I bought a lemon basil transplant today and it came with stems of flower on the tops. Now with my sweet basil I pinch the stems with the white flowers off to get a bushy plant, do you do the same for lemon basil?

Thanks!

yes. Okay, i actually don't know for certain. But i'm pretty sure you treat all basils basically the same.

While it's still a baby, it will help to remove the flowers, to encourage growth of leaves. The flowers are edible.
