Best Answer

Pinch back new growth to make the plant bushier.

Basil is a member of the mint family, so it likes good drainage and moist soil.

Given moist soil, full sun, and a regular dose of diluted fertilizer (like compost tea) you can trim your basil plants with scissors or pinch back with your fingernails.

Always trim back to a leaf node - don't leave bare stems.
