If I had to pick a favorite herb, it would have to be Basil. In fact, I can honestly say that I’m slightly addicted to this amazing herb. I have multiple seedlings already growing and I’m about to start a few more. This year I’m not going to bother with the ornamental varieties like the last years, Opal Basil. Instead I’m planting varieties of various sizes. I have the statuesque Italian Large leaf basil, the medium bush size of the French Fino Verde and lastly the bonsai eight inch Italian variety. I’m also growing Thai basil’s for stir fry and a Lemon Basil (thanks to Gardenpunks). What about you, are there any varieties that you can’t live without?
