Ocimum basilicum citriodorum
Herb Growing Tips
Light: Full sun
Watering: Keep soil moist, do not let soil get too dry.
Soil: Light, well drained soil. If need you can use Plant Feed once a month.
Comments: never prune more than 50% of your plant's leaves, this could cause too much stress on your basil plant. Continuous trimming avoids these annuals going to seed; allowing your plant to focus more on producing foliage than blooms!
Basil 'Pesto Perpetuo' is a wonderful culinary basil with the distinct basil flavor and a hint of lemon. A lovely plant that grows light green leaves with creamy variegation with a columnar growth habit. Very unusual for a basil and this is definitely an eye-catcher!
This basil is easy to grow, and insects and diseases seem to ignore it! It's a prolific basil so you can expect great yields.
Basil is also a fantastic companion plant and natural pest repellent.
