A native of south East Asia, this has a distinctly liquorice flavour and is as easy to grow as other basils. The purple flowers are an attractive feature of this narrow-leaved strain. Can be grown in pots outdoors or on a windowsill. Worth a place in every herb garden.
Sow indoors all year round in pots or trays of compost, place on a warm kitchen windowsill. Sow outdoor May - June, in final position (0.5cm/quarter-inch deep). In rows 25-30cm/10-12in apart. Thin out to 25cm/10in apart. Keep well watered and weed free. Harvest June - October, all year round if sown indoors.
