African basil and Tomato questions :)

African basil and Tomato questions :)

Hi all! I have a Purple African Basil plant that now has flowers on it. I know for standard basil, you are meant to take the flowers off for more growth, but does that include all forms of basil? Also, I am in Seattle and planted 3 Roma tomato plants in large containers on the porch. They are getting huge, but none have flowered yet. Is this normal? We had the coldest first two weeks of June on record this year, so maybe that is the issue? I will be back later today with pics of my lettuce woes and questions on how to correct it next time I plant lettuce. Thanks :)
