The aroma on it’s amazing. When I cook with the food taste more fresh. Everyone tells me that my cooking is always si yummy and flavorful.

I give the the recipe but they say it’s not the same. Maybe because they are not cooking with fresh herbs. I do🥰😉

It tends to grow quite tall with n only a few weeks. Trim the leaves and to continue its growth, cut the center of the three stem that form on top. The smell helps you know if it’s healthy, it’s like a spicy ham ^^

Amazing herb! Can be harvested as needed and great for a beginner plant. Works well in ground and containers. Wonderful aroma.

bought this basil plant from Aldi weeks ago and it’s still hanging on somehow, so I have taken it under my wing. massive drama queen and will wilt and shrivel away if you don’t water it for one day but will bounce back into its luscious self after a glug of water

Basil is a finicky plant. Get it right or it’ll die.
