Italian Large Leaf Basil Plant
If you are into herb gardening for culinary herbs, Italian Large Leaf Basil is a must have basil plant. This culinary herb is a sweeter pesto type basil with high yields in the garden. A large variety with medium-dark green leaves, this basil is bigger than most others found in the basil family. Fairly resistant to damage from pests and disease, Italian Large Leaf self-seeds easily and grows well in a container. Very aromatic and as popular with bees and butterflies as it is with chefs, this is one of our most favorite basil plants. When compared to Genovese the flavor and scent are sweeter and less clove like. Plant in full sun and harvest frequently to keep from going to flower. Basil is also a fantastic natural mosquito and pest repellent and its blooms are great for attracting helpful pollinators to your garden. Comes in a 4" pot. Available for pickup only at The Garden Shop at TGC Toys and Gifts.
