This weekend project: Mojitos, Pesto & homemade pizza salsa – Mint, Oregano & Basil pruning –

23 Jul

Cut back by half herbs like basil, mint and oregano. This prevents them from producing seed and promotes more fragrant leaves.  If plants are in a pot, cut them down to the rim level of the container.  Make sure to pull up runners that thrive along the ground by trimming them back to the root and pulling them up. This helps the mint from becoming woody. Water deeply and add organic fertilizer. Use cuttings for different recipes such Mojitos, Pesto pasta or homemade pizza salsa with fresh oregano!!
