  1. This may be a stupid question, but how do you harvest basil leaves without killing the plant? Do you just pull leaves off or do you lop off a piece from the top? I had a purple basil plant one year, and I just could not keep it going. I bought two sweet basil plants this year and am hoping I do better with those. . .
    1. I just pluck the leaves off mine. It's done great. If you get flowers, you need to pluck them off or the basil will die.
      1. Thanks so much Melissa! I had flowers on my purple one so that explains it going kaput. Cross your fingers for me!
