Title: Thai Basil
Post by: LivingParadise on March 31, 2017, 04:09:42 PM
In my experience, ridiculously easy to grow in pots, very pretty purple flowers on stalks, reseeds itself, decent hot weather substitute for Italian basil when needed - although slightly different flavor, and smaller pointed leaves. Very drought tolerant. And of course, healthy for you. Has been a no-care plant for me. Never tried to grow it in local soil to see if it tolerates poor soils though, because I don't need that much of it.
