Joanna Gaines has shared her tips for cleaning, gardening, and even parenting, but the HGTV star still has a few tips up her denim sleeves. The co-host of Upper Fixator just revealed how she pulls off her summer flower arrangements, and it’s a secret even the opponent of the shiplap will love.

Instead of throwing away leftover basil, she puts the cooking staple in a bouquet for fullness, with the added bonus of a fresh scent.

Even if you are not cooking, pruning your basil plant becomes necessary once it begins to bloom. Healthy pruning encourages the plant to grow more leaves, and it comes back bigger and healthier than before.

On the other hand, if you’ve used all your basil for a homemade pesto (yum!), Other herbs will do. Experiment with sprigs of rosemary, mint, and thyme to achieve the same lush, fragrant effect.
