Basil Collection

For fresh and flavorful cooking

As we all strive to maintain healthy diets with flavorful food, cooking with fresh herbs and veggies becomes normal kitchen practice. Basil plays a large part in any herb garden, and our new collection covers all the basil bases.

We have two types of sweet basil: the traditional variety as well as basil Genovese with larger, darker leaves. Because they grow at different speeds, plant both to provide a constant supply for the kitchen. Two interesting small-leaf basils are Spicy Globe and Boxwood. Spicy Globe has an amazing sharp flavor, and Boxwood looks as good in the garden as it does on a plate. To add both spice and color to a salad or meal, try Red Rubin’s purple-red leaves.

Basil is easy to grow in warm, sunny gardens or patio containers. Enjoy its fragrance and keep the scissors handy for harvesting leaves and removing flower stems!
