This may be a duplicate of what I already asked, but I am not sure.
I have some questions. I always want good success so maybe some questions maybe make me sound as a real novice - but I am in China anyway, ahah.
I live in Guangzhou (Canton) China and we are now going into our rainy season and it has been raining now for a few days.
I planted basil and parsley a few weeks ago and they are doing great. Basil ("Big leaf" and "Sweet" - what's difference?)is about 6 inches (about 15 cms) with huge leaves and the parsley is about 4 inches (about 10 cms) with "regular leaves (Italian "flat leaf").
Question1 is - should I cut off the "huge leaves" on the basil? They seem to be shadowing the under branches growth. Second question is - should I continue watering them as I was before the rain? (I was watering them daily or sometimes every other day). The plants look good and also I haven't thinned them out yet (I hate to thin them out). I also planted Oregano, but it hasn't sprouted (yet?).
Thanks for any suggestions.
