Basil Trying to Go to Seed Too Early
Hello to all plant lovers...!
I have a question regarding something that has happened to me for years now, and am wondering if I can do anything about it. It's regarding Basil plants trying to go to seed far too early..........sometimes within a week of planting in the ground! Am I doing something wrong, or is this just what Basil does?? Like I said earlier, this has been the case for YEARS when I plant this lovely herb. My girlfriend says I'd better keep it cut back or it will go to seed and then die.. Is this correct?
I would welcome any information anyone might have on this subject.... Thanks in advance for any info you can provide..!
