Lemon Basil has an intense lemon smell. Used in both sweet and savoury dishes and is a popular herb in Arabic, Indonesian, Lao, Persian and Thai cuisine. When basil flowers, the flavour weakens and leaves become smaller, dry and leathery. When flower clusters form, they should be removed, this will promote more growth. At the end of basil season - March, It is good idea to allow to flower and set seeds that you can collect, to use in cooking or to grow next season.
