Nothing adds flavour to cooked dishes and salads so simply as freshly picked herbs from your garden. All the basil family are very frost tender. Aristotle Basil is a highly aromatic basil which forms an almost perfect round ball of leaves making itÂ perfect for patio or window sill. What better way to use your basil than in your own home made pesto to mix with pasta, spread on white fish or chicken. Delicious!
