You just can’t cook Thai food properly without this essential ingredient! This Basil has the anise undertones necessary to evoke authentic flavor in dishes, & growing your own is really the best way to have it on hand in the fresh state, when all of the essential oils are most potent! The quintessence of summer, there’s hardly a person I can think of who could object to fresh, home grown Basil. Rich Soil, regular water, & full sun are what basil requires. To 1’ or more in height & width, pinch tips back for bushier plants, with more fresh tips to harvest from. After you’re done with your culinary harvest, let the plants flower – they have some of the best flowers for bees, who need all the help they can get!
