Seed saving:Basil

Rino's lemon basil is a variety he got from a relative in Thailand. It has larger leaves than the normal lemon basil so is well worth saving for seed to be grown again next summer. As soon as the flower heads turn brown I place them in a paper bag to dry and then shake out the tiny black seeds. I transfer the seed to tiny zip-lock bags and store them in the fridge.
