Basil 'Holy'  

Sown in a SWC in the greenhouse in early June. Grew very well. Sweet smelling. Unusual taste – not very typical “basilly!” Tried the dried leaves for tea. Excellent with a touch of honey. Love this one. Brought the SWC inside & pruned off all of the stems to dry for winter tea. Saved lots of seeds. Put the pot in the laundry room. Growing back VERY well!

Finally sucummed to spider mites.
