Basil Purple is an aromatic herb with unique, deep purple leaves. With a strong aroma and beautifully sweet & spicy flavour, this herb is perfect for pairing with rice dishes, and tastes excellent with tomatoes too.

This plant is best grown indoors as an annual, in moist, well-drained, sandy or loamy soil. It will grow well by a sunny window, and it can be moved outside in the summer months. Water sparingly, ideally in the morning, and regularly harvest the leaves. Removing flowers will also allow the plant to focus on leaf production.

Please Note: When purchasing plants, please consider that each live item is unique and may therefore differ from the images shown, which are for illustration purposes only. The plant will be supplied in a growers pot. Depending on season, some plants may be pruned back to encourage growth and deciduous plants may arrive without leaves.
