Large-Leaf Italian Basil


A must-have for the herb garden, basil is a favorite for many Italian dishes such as pasta sauces, soups and vegetables. It's also a lovely addition to summer salads. Basil can be used fresh or dried. Although easy to grow, basil is cold sensitive and not winter hardy. Zone 10. Ships in 3" pot. Ocimum basilicum

Herbs are so rewarding and easy to grow—in herb gardens, containers or flower beds. When called for in a recipe, just snip a few leaves. Once you've enjoyed homegrown herbs in recipes, you'll never want to go back to store-bought herbs. Have extra herbs? Snip a few and make a fresh herb potpourri. Herbs can also be dried for winter-time use.

When you purchase herb plants from Spring Hill, they'll be delivered to you at the proper planting time—no more searching garden centers for the herbs you want.
