Ocimum tenuiflorum

An annual herb with wonderfully aromatic leaves, it's great in cooking and is packed full of vitamins. A tea from the leaves is also meant to be good to reduce anxiety, it tastes like a cross between ginger and mint. Syrup made with the leaves can be good for coughs and colds - add a little honey to taste.

Grow in full sun and ensure it has good drainage.

Single herb plant in a 13cm Italian terracotta pot, with a matching saucer. Planted in a peat-free compost mix with added vermiculite for extra drainage.
