Anyone know why my sweet basil's leaves have now grown more long and pointy like a Thai basil instead of those cute lil round ones it's supposed to have? Also is it starting to flower at the top? What can I do about that?

if you want it to keep producing basil, cut off the flower stalks, if you want them to go to seed keep them intact! i was just reading about this :)
Awesome thank you! I'll cut off those lil tops!
! You helped me too!
