Description

We grow basil for many reasons here — first of course to scatter over things like tomato salad, but with these two, they look marvellous, creating an ornamental edging to any bit of sunny garden or greenhouse AND they are the perfect companion plant, keeping aphids at bay.

This collection contains 5 seedlings each of:
  • Basil 'Purple Ruffles'
  • Basil 'Floral Spires Lavender'

Care Tips

Grows well in a container, keep re-potting into a slightly larger pot when roots start to show through the drainage holes at the bottom. Water plants in the morning if possible. Keep plants bushy by pinching the tips and removing any flowers.
