Product Description

This 'bushy' basil has smaller more delicate leaves than it's popular counterpart and a delicious strong scent.  Pick leaves from the plant and use just as for Basil. The best way to look after basil is to let the plant tell you it needs watering, as it will start to wilt. The plants will quickly spring back up and the stress will actually increase the oil content they are producing, improving the flavour. It is also important not to water the plants too soon before harvesting the leaves, as this will dilute the flavour. Basil is highly susceptible to chill (below 10°C) or cold draughts - the leaves will start to blacken.                                                                                                                              


Growing herbs are 'cut as you need' , harvest just above leaf growth to encourage the plant to re-grow.  
                                                             

Watering the herbs from the bottom is the key to keeping them healthy and to prolonging their life. Your herbs have always been watered from below so by keeping to this regime you will extend the life of the plant. Remove the herb pots from their sleeves and place the pots on a saucer. By placing water at the bottom of the tray you can always see how much water your plants have taken up.  As most herbs originate from hot countries they like to be kept on the dry side. The more heat and light they are exposed to, the more frequently they will need watering. Generally water little and often and never keep your plant in standing water

Useless

Smells good but tastes of nothing. Leaves are too small. I'm not even sure you are suppose to put it in food...

Vigorous bush but oddly tasteless

Big bushy plant and super robust, but tiny leaves are a hassle to strip and do not add any flavour of anything to a salad, most odd! Looks jolly on the windowsill but that's it.
