Large Leaf Basil
Italian Large Leaf Basil. Heirloom. Pick the extra large leaves and use fresh or dried in tomato dishes, pasta sauces, vegetables and soups. You can also use basil in the garden as a companion plant to repel aphids, mites, and tomato hornworms. Packet contains 15 seeds.
Temporarily out of stock. I use these fragrant and compact plants as a border plant in my veggie beds. Tight mounds of small leaves that resemble boxwood plants make a highly ornamental edging for the patio or in a container. I think they are perfect for a small garden where you don’t have enough space for one of the huge basil plants. The Boxwood basil is just fine to use in cooking as you would the other varieties. Contains 15 seeds.
Even on one of the hottest days of August these plants remain in perfect form, extremely bushy and productive.
