Basil – Sweet Genovese (Organic)£1.95 – £3.50 Select options
Basil – Sweet Genovese (Organic)
The classic basil variety, very productive, aromatic and perfect for all culinary uses, especially pesto. With large bright green leaves and a smell to die for this is an essential addition to the veg plot. We think you cannot grow too much basil, we use it in almost every meal throughout the summer months. Genovese makes the most superb pesto, aromatic without being overpowering and giving us a much needed taste of sunshine when stored or frozen and then eaten throughout the winter months.
A robust, trustworthy variety of ‘The King of Herbs’ with the perfect balance of aroma and subtlety. It is an essential companion to tomatoes.

Basil – Thai (Organic)
Irreplaceable, anise-flavoured variety used in Asian cooking on a compact plant that is equally as ornamental as it is culinary . Striking both in flavour and appearance, Thai basil has a more concentrated, spicy flavour than its more well known cousin with notes of anise and liquorice. It has smaller, narrow, pointed leaves with flowers and stems of a deep purple. It’s perfect for Thai green and red curries and stir fries and is resilient to longer cooking methods.£2.00 – £3.70
Basil – Red (Organic)£2.30 – £3.70 Select options
Basil – Red (Organic)
Beautiful deep red purple foliage with similar taste and properties to common green basil. Red basil has both ornamental and culinary uses. We use it as garnish or to add colour to salads or made into pesto. It will look great in your garden, not to forget the amazing sweet scent of goodness when you walk past.£2.30 – £3.70
Basil – Lemon (Organic)£2.00 Add to basket
Basil – Lemon (Organic)
This unusual basil will enchant you with its wonderful lemony basil fragrance that is caused by a high content of citral and limonene. It has a milder taste than ordinary basil and can be used in cooking or to make a herbal tea. It also goes exceptionally well in sweet dishes adding a citrusy twist.
The plants have small, green leaves with slightly serrated edges. We just love having it growing in our polytunnel or garden and think it’s worth a try if you haven’t already.
