This is a very compact free flowering bushy basil that is very attractive to bees. It makes a wonderful edible bedding plant and can also be used as a great tasting leaf product if harvested young.
Basil thrives in rich, well-drained soil, in a warm sheltered position. Pick the leaves as required, best used fresh. Indoors: Sow in March to April, 0.5 cm deep, in separate pots if possible. Plant out in late May, spacing 30cm apart. Outdoors: Sow in drills, in May, with thin to 30 cm spacing. All Year round: Sow in pots on the windowsill.
