Taking Cuttings of Basil for Propagation

It’s no secret that I love to propagate plants. I especially love to propagate the easy plants. The ones where success is almost 100% assured! Believe it or not there are a few of those. Basil is one that I almost always can get to root simply by taking cuttings and putting it in a jar of water.
