How to propagate seedless basil by cuttings

Is it possible to breed basil without seeds? If we get a branch from the plant, we can have a new plant in our kitchen easily and quickly. And it is that getting a sprig of basil is very simple, you can even find them in a supermarket.

Then we can plant the basil in our urban garden or pot as well as culinary uses. It is a great ally in the garden, especially for the association of crops, by associating it with tomatoes on the salad terrace, because it helps us to prevent certain pests. And in the kitchen, it will liven up more than one dish. That’s for sure!

In this video we are going to use a basil plant that I have at home that we sow in the spring from seed, but as you can see in mid summer the plant is in full production. We will enjoy taking a small branch and seeing how to “sow” basil without seeds. In quotation marks, since we will not sow it, but we will reproduce it.

If we are going to cut a branch from our plants to make a basil cutting, we can take advantage of these small branches that come out of the main stem, similar to tomato suckers. Also, if we want to speed up the process, we can always use a rooting agent based on lentils, an aloe or willow rooting agent.
