Thai Basil likes to be cut! You can start trimming your plants approximately one month after planting. You may remove single leaves occasionally… But, for more thriving growth, pinching off the whole tip is recommended – it will grow two new shoots in a week.
Trimming your plant will also delay flowering and prevents the taste from becoming bitter. It is up to you – if you want to see Thai Basil’s flowers, do not cut your plant anymore. If you would like to keep harvesting its anise smelling leaves, continue trimming.
Basil is an annual plant and does not last forever. If it has been over twelve weeks and the plant looks aged, it is time to replace the pod.
