Basil in my rooftop garden

I needed pots for the Petunia and Dahlia seedlings and I realised that I had lots of pots with Basil growing in them! It seems to have self seeded throughout my roof top terrace garden alongside other plants and into many empty pots. And all these from one small cutting that a friend of mine had given me!

Basil plants ready to be pulled out

Some seeds collected too!
I hated to pull out all the healthy Basil plants but I needed the pots for Petunia and Dahlia seedlings. However, there was a silver lining to this cloud too. I had a whole bunch of beautiful aromatic Basil leaves and so I made Pesto! 
I have some empty pots now but I think I'm going to need a whole lot more!
