Botanical name: Ocimum gratissimum
Dimensions of the 9 L Air-Pot container are 269 mm diameter × 275 mm high.
Perennial basil is a stronger, spicier basil than the familiar sweet one in supermarkets, and lends itself more to Asian cooking rather than salads.
As implied by the name, this grows all-year round, and is very handy to have during winter when looking for some last-minute herbs for a dish. Perfect for stir-fries any time of the year too!
Gorgeous aroma — just brushing past it releases a brilliant and lingering scent.
Fantastic for attracting pollinators, as the bees just love these flowers, which it always seems to have no matter what time of year!
This plant is a strong and vigorous grower, and will grow to a bush about 1 m wide and high. It responds well to the aeration Air-Pot containers provide, and will thrive when fertilised and watered regularly.
