Can't have enough basil! BASIL PRUNING When you cut the stalk the two nodes at the leaves grow branches. On those branches will be two more leaves. Cut there and you will grow four more and so on till you have a bush big enough to make a gallon of pesto.
Fruit plants that double as regular “yard” plants without a lot of special care include: figs (I want Brown Turkey), blueberries, some apples and pears (fire blight resistant varieties only), and potted citrus (I want a "regular" lemon, not Meyer).
