Name: Basil Sweet
Description : Sweet basil is another easy to grow herb. Ours is growing in one of the same half barrels as the Ku Chai and Chives. The plants are growing prolifically and healthily. Sweet basil can be used for seasoning meat or combined with Tomatoes to form a pesto. It is an aromatic herb, that is also rumoured to assist in keeping flies away, although an awful lot of basil is required to be a truly effective deterrent.
