Basil

Annual. Likes sun, heat and good drainage. Unless you have good growing conditions outdoors, a pot in the kitchen out of a draft is good. We typically have the following varieties: common green (sweet) variety; African, which has lovely blue-purple stems and green and purple leaves and is more hardy; purple - like the sweet but purple; minarette, with narrow green leaves. All types are good for cooking, drying, infusing and medical uses.
