I have 3 Genovase Basil plants that are growing tall, but the leaves are long and narrow. What do you suggest so that the leaves are rounded and dark green?

I think the leaf shape is genetic but if your plant is not getting enough light it can stretch to reach more sunlight, which can cause the leaves to be long rather than more round and dark green. Try moving the plants to a better location and I think you'll see a difference.
