Experts and BHG readers answer.
How do I keep my basil plants full. I am not sure how to harvest leaves and keep the plant bushy. Thanks for your help I live in Seattle WA area.
Rather than pulling off individual leaves, cut back the tops of the plants and harvest the leaves off the cut stems. Cutting forces the plants to branch, making them fuller and bushier.
