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.
