Basil growing Back !

Maple, ON

Hi my stupid neighbor cut the grass and mowed down my basil . Will it grow back ?

Arlington, MA(Zone 6a)

it depends on how high the mower was set. if there are still axils, you will probably get new lateral branches.

I think your neighbor should buy you a new basil plant !

Ah! Nothing like a grass lover!

it will take more than a lawn mower to kill mints. you might want to grow your mints in pots.

Basil needs trimmed back once in awhile, just not brutally. How about stakes so he can run into those?

Maybe a 6 ft steel fence post.

or an electric fence...
