United States Edition

   nickyn's Basil 'Lime' x 1 Dying

Plant: American basil (Ocimum americanum) | Variety: Lime

This planting has been archived (Died)

Sown in the greenhouse direct into pot. Grew VERY easily & well. My favourite basil of the year. Froze quite a bit in ice cube trays. Used in several recipes. The best was Bechamel Sauce with lime basil & grilled eggplant over salmon. Yummy. Saved tons of seeds. Will do double/triple the amount next year.
