Basil – the can’t-live-without-it herb.

June 28, 2016

It simply exudes summer! Sprinkle over salads, pizzas, pastas and even summer strawberries (yep, strawberries). Originating from India, today Basil can be found all over the world. Preferring light soil and high temperatures summer is most certainly Basil’s season (it’s not a fan of frost). There are over 160 varieties of basil that differ in colour, size and taste with each type having it’s own unique aroma.

Make the most of this in season summer staple…
