Purple and white flowers adorn this aromatic herb, along with dark purple stems and narrow green leaves. Widely used for both culinary and health benefits, a valuable addition to any herb garden. It has a milder flavour when compared to sweet basil, and is used extensively in Thai and Vietnamese cookery.Prefers well-drained soil in full sun or can also be grown in pots on a sunny windowsill.
For best results, sow seeds in good light at any time onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Seeds should ideally germinate in between 2 and 6 weeks although they make take considerably longer. Pot on seedlings before finally planting out into a container or a well-drained spot.
