Sweet Basil: Powerful leaves are delicious in pasta, cheese, egg, and fish dishes. Pick anytime for fresh use and pinch tops when 15 cm (6") tall to encourage branching. This annual herb is sensitive to frost but can be planted indoors.

Thai Basil: A very aromatic herb ideal for cooking in Thai and Vietnamese dishes. Add to beef and chicken dishes to maximize the mild licorice flavour derived from the leaves of the plant

 Suggestions: Dry quickly, after harvest, to retain flavour for teas and cooking uses.
