Don’t forget to keep an eye on your basil. When you see flowers forming at the ends of stems, you will want to prune them back. This will encourage the plant to become bushier and more productive. It will also keep your plant from dieing prematurely. Take a sharp pair of scissors or pruners, and cut right above the next pair of leaves below the flowering stem. You can then take these cuttings and add them to your food dishes!
