Sacred Basil,  Ocimum sanctum Much better adapted to cool weather than other basils. It has small leaves with a clove scent excellent for salads pesto and herbal tea mixes.

Basil needs a bit of heat and is happiest in the green house but can do well out of doors in a sunny spot in mid-summer. Sow in April in a green house or a sunny windowsill and plant out when the seedlings are about 5cm tall. Protect from cold and slugs using a cloche or cut-off plastic bottle. Harvest by cutting off the top shoot before it flowers. Dry when in full flower, for tea.
