This is my 5th attempt to grow a basil plant. Also, what is the best way to store basil?

RE: basil green worms eating my plant

I dry mine in the dehydrator and store in empty spice jars. I have read that freezing them in ice cube trays is a great way to preserve basil. After they are solid, you can pop them out and store in a freezer bag. Nice serving size :-)

I have no idea on the worms, maybe spray them off with a water hose?
