First Haircut

Oh my . . . someone is getting quite tall. This is the Spice Basil that I took cuttings of on October 5. The easiest way to tell if your cuttings have taken root is if they are producing new growth. Yes, these are rooted.


Tall, lanky plants are not healthy plants so I have pruned them down to the second set of leaves. This will force them to start new side growth making the plants bushier and sturdier.


Ah, that’s better. If I had the space, I could try rooting the pieces that I pruned off, but I don’t so I won’t.
