Lettuce Leaf Basil Seeds
Lettuce Leaf Basil produces very large, somewhat crinkled leaves that grow to 12cm in length and width. It has a fantastic flavour, likened to the flavour of sweet basil, but not as strong. It makes a great addition to salads or dishes including pasta or with your Charlie's Patch tomatoes! Lettuce Leaf Basil is also awesome to wrap chicken or fish in when cooking.
Not only does basil go well with tomato outside of the garden, but inside, you can plant it with your tomato plants as a companion plant to help in repelling pests such as hornworms and aphids. Leaves can be picked and eaten fresh, or dried for later use.
Pinch off tips of single stemmed growth to encourage a bushier plant.
