3 x 9cm Potted Plants (LATE)

Ocimum basilicum

From 04th June 2024

More compact with smaller aromatic leaves this variety produces clusters of small white tubular flowers in summer. Scatter whole leaves over tomatoes, pasta and rice dishes.

Basil Plants This popular herb is an essential ingredient in many Italian dishes with strongly flavoured leaves that can be used to perk up tomato dishes, blitzed to make pesto sauce and added to pizzas, pasta and salads. Outdoors, basil needs protection from wind and frost. However, in autumn, when temperatures start to dip, bring a few plants back indoors to provide a fresh supply of leaves in winter. Supplied in 9cm pots.

My favourite basil

The plants were smaller than usual, but I expect it’s due to the cold spring weather. They are struggling this year as I grow them in a warm sheltered spot outside, but hopefully they will catch up if we get a warmer spell. I use them regularly for cooking. My favourite basil.

Basil

The basil arrived in good condition and was planted the same day and is growing strong.

A bit scraggly

I trust D.T. Brown inherently and have been using the company's seeds and plants for around four years--and will keep doing so. But I do think that some of the seedlings they send are not quite hardened enough.

These basil plants are a bit too young and spindly. I suspect that most plants will be okay but I've already lost a few. Had D.T. Brown held them just a week or so longer before sending out, I think, they would have been more hardy.

Last year, when I had the same problem, I called the company and was instantly sent new plants. Customer service is spectacular. So, I still highly recommend using the company to help you build your garden.
