Here's what I have. A little crowded in a 5 gallon pot with oregano and rosemary.

Anyone have any advice on preserving basil? I have a dehydrator and have heard about layering fresh basil leaves in salt and keeping in the freezer. I might try both ways and see what works best.
If you don't like the heat, move to Maine!

I pruned mine as suggested.
Froze all the pickings in a freezer bag.
Put em outside on a shelf, they look happy.
