Known for both it’s flavor and fragrance, sweet basil is the perfect companion for all of your favorite Italian dishes. It likes the heat and lots of sun, grows well in containers, and can reach 30” in height. Sweet Basil likes its space, so plant this tasty herb at least 18” apart.
A classic among basil varieties, sweet basil never fails to add that special something to salads, pestos, or your favorite tomato sauce. It is also used medicinally in infusions, for skincare and the oil can be used in aromatherapy. It's a sun lover, can grow to just over a foot and half tall, and likes to have a little space to branch out (14 inches is preferred).
