Dolly Organic Basil
Dolly is a fast growing and particularly nice Genovese type basil with large, highly aromatic leaves just waiting to be torn fresh over pasta and salads.
Leaves grow up to 10cm (4″) with minimally serrated margins.
Dolly Organic basil is well suited to container growing and resistant to cool night temperatures, so it’s a better choice than many for coastal gardens.
Pinching the growing tip will keep the plants very bushy, producing more leaves, and delaying the flowering stage.
Once flowers appear, the plants flavor will be at its peak, so harvest all at once, or just keep picking as needed.
