Basil selection.
« on: January 03, 2023, 16:39 »
Hello everyone - still raining out there! >:(

Can anyone recommend a basil with the largest leaves and the strongest flavour?

I need to rebuild our (I mean my) store of pesto,  the Memsahib aint too keen on it.

Cheers.  Tony.
I may be growing OLD, but I refuse to grow UP !

Genovese is the classic Italian basil with extra-large dark green leaves and spicy flavour.

 Good morning snow,  if your seeds didn't germinate, how do you know how long the leaves are  Aaah Aaah? ! ? !

Thanks for that info Mum.

Cheers,  Tony. :)
