Recommend you take a cutting or two and see if you can root them in water to start new plants. You can grow them on a sunny windowsill through the winter then harden them off for your garden in the spring. You'll even get to harvest some leaves for your scrambled eggs in the winter as well. Such a luxury.
Another question, as I can't see in this picture, but were there multiple Basil plants in the pot when you planted it? If so, they also might be strangling each other. I know how common it is to buy a 4in. pot of Basil with 5 or 6 plants in it, just to make it look attractive for the store. But if you get one of these, buy one with small enough plants that you can separate them and give each the space it deserves - about a foot apart is good for a vigorous grower like Basil.
