I live in Zone 9. We've been experiencing some wild weather with temps
well into triple digits.
During that time, I purchased two beautiful 1-gallon basil beauties from
Trader Joe's, planted them in direct sunlight, watered them regularly,
and they took with no difficulty to their new digs. Today, when I went
out to trim some leaves, I noticed the silly things are blooming from
every tip. Is there a way of stopping that cycle or is it too late and
I'll just have to live with them cutting out soon?
