Botanical Name: Ocimum basilicum
A wonderful aromatic herb with beautiful purple-green leaves and a milder flavour than Sweet Basil. It makes an excellent potted herb and can be grown successfully indoors or outdoors. Useful as a border plant and can be grown well in pots and containers. Basil prefers warm conditions and full sun.
We hope you enjoy these basil seeds, just another great example of herb seeds from Mr Fothergill's!
