Greek Basil (Ocimum basilicum var. minimum)
Greek Basil (Ocimum basilicum var. minimum): beautiful cultivar of intense flavour, the bushy habit forms a very decorative ball, the small and delicate leaves frame the white flowers that top it.
Easy to cultivate, however, it requires a fertile soil. If grown in pots, help it with earthworm humus or other natural fertilisers to have a beautiful appearance and, above all, a more intense smell and taste.
Greek basil is also more tolerant to cold than regular ones. Pots can be placed on tables to avoid unwanted insects.
