Basil
Attractive, compact plants.
Easy to grow on a sunny windowsill or in
a warm, sheltered spot outside. Lots of
varieties to choose from, with different leaf
size, colour and flavour. You can also buy
small plants to grow on for quicker results.

Freshly picked basil leaves have
a pungent flavour. Raw leaves go well in
tomato salads, and are an essential for pesto.
Add to many dishes to give a flavour
of the Mediterranean.
