Overwintering Basil: Taking Basil Cuttings

It’s finally getting chilly here – 73 degrees! Brrrrr!


But really, it’s getting down to 49 degrees at night. Basil, I know, doesn’t like cold temperatures. We have both Thai basil and regular basil.

The Thai basil grew particularly well. I think it’s success is attributed to the fact that it was on the sunnier end of the bed.

This little basil plant below was one grown from a cutting from Dr. Kong.

I’m hoping I can keep some cuttings going through the winter, and plant them back out in the spring as soon as it warms up again.

Here are the cuttings I took:

I’ll keep them in a container with water and hope they root.
