Heirloom Basils

Nothing says “Spring!” quite as much as fragrant, versatile basil! Our selection below pretty much covers every flavour, leaf-size, colour and growth habit available — and all delivered in small, well-rooted, lightweight Jiffy Preforma plugs that eliminate transplant shock and get your new plants off to a great start.

These will be ready around August – September, but feel free to browse in the meantime!
