After you've transplanted your seedlings to the growing shelf. Each pod should be thinned to 1 seedling. To do this pull out the excess seedlings using a pair of tweezers or your fingers gently.
For culinary use, trim flowering stems just before buds open; the tips of buds will be purple. Buds can be dried or used fresh. Foliage may also be trimmed and used for culinary purposes. To dry, harvest flowering stems towards the base of the plant and tie in a bunch. Hang stems upside down in a cool, dark area.
