Compact growing basil with green medium sized leaves lightly tinged with purple. Deep purple stems and pale pink flowers. Sweet taste reminiscent of anise.
Sow end March - April. Sow seeds in a seed tray, cover seeds with 0.3-0.5cm moist compost.
Transfer seedlings into small pots. Grow the plants on in a warm place and place outside only in June or plant in a greenhouse at a spacing of 25x25cm. Harvest in July by cutting off the top of the main shoot. The plant will produce side shoots for a later harvest.
