Basil- Sweet

Easy to grow and prolific!

Sweet!

Seedling sprouted well.. accidentally planted too many and they all germinated! Good problem to have though

ARID QLD "Rook"

Excellent Germination, Perfect for beginners, Fast growing, Can be grown in ground or in containers, transplants well, beautiful white flowers and lush delicious leaves, survives frost & heatwaves, easy to care for - watch for some pests as they also enjoy it check under leaves & stalks, can grow quite high unless picked frequently for bushy habit quite sturdy but in high winds its top heavy nature may cause breakage. One of the best herbs you can grow! also lasts long in cold storage.

easy to grow in garden or pot, Great.

It grows in full sun or part shade. doesn't need a lot of depth in a pot and makes a nice green inbetween the flowers.
