Basil is a plant that I often get asked how to grow successfully. It seems that some gardeners have no trouble keeping a plentiful supply of basil growing and others struggle to produce a few leaves for the top of a pizza.
I love the smell of basil. Actually, let me correct that, I love the smell of cinnamon basil, thai basil, greek mini, red basil, basil bush AND your general, garden-variety sweet or giant basil.
Top chefs will tell you the secret to a great meal is to use the freshest ingredients available.And you can’t get fresher, or more available, than your own garden.
