bought at Floria2009, a flower show in Putrajaya.
We have been growing basil for quite sometime now, and lately baby basil can be seen all over the place, through reseeding. It is convenient in a way, to look around and decide which baby basil should be allowed to grow and the rest pulled out.... The earlier basil has light green leaves and white tiny blooms.
We bought another basil plant with heavier green leaves and slight purplish pink flowers, at the recent Floria2009, an exiting flower show Putrajaya has seen in years. We put it in a clay pot...... and it is definitely growing.
Both species, has varying color and look. They send out slightly different smell too but still within the range what basil should smell like...... Kakdah will pick a leaf or two to let her menu be more aromatic....
have fun with gardening
