A few days ago, I bought fresh large leaf organic italian basil from the store. I had never seen the large leaf basil at the store before. As soon as I saw organic basil at the store, I thought of buying it so that I can grow it at home.
In summer, I do see many stores selling potted herbs, but I hardly find organic basil. Growing herbs at home is very easy.
Here is what you need to do to root basil.
Cut the bottom 1-2 centemeter of the stem, so that the new cells get exposed to the air. Remove most of the leaves from the stem, leaving just a few leaves on the top portion. Dip this stem in a flas filled with water. Make sure that the leaves are not in water, or they will decay.
Note: You can use the same method for growing mint at home too.
