Basil ~ Ocimum basilicum

There’s no other herb that screams summer to me than basil….
Not only is it a culinary delight but it also can be used as a mosquito repellent and (if you weren’t quick enough) as relief from itchy bites.
- Thai Basil, a beauts aniseedy basil for all your Thai cooking needs
- Dark Opal, all the flavour of basil with fantastically dark purple leaves.
- Holy Basil, highly revered plant in India with so many medicinal qualities, also known as Tulsi. Has a peppery clove flavour.
