Giving away basil
Reviewed By: Heather (Houston, TX)
Every purchased basil plant bolted within weeks in our heat. I decided to try seed to see if I could harvest more leaves . . . oh, boy, do we have basil! Every seed has grown into a very happy plant. I've made pesto several times, tossed it in pastas and soups, and have given away quart-bags full to several guests. You'd still never know the plants had given up a leaf. I'll be making many more pestos and herb butters with a single seed packet, and planting more every year. Thanks, Gurney's!

Excellent
Reviewed By: Holli (Leesburg, VA)
I started this herb inside then put it out in the garden in full sun. It took off and gave me basil right up until the first frost. It was great and I would highly recommend it!

Very happy with my plants!
Reviewed By: Nicole D (Baton Rouge, LA)
Normally I don't write reviews, but the Basil was worth it. I planted the seeds in spring. The container plants did ok. but I planted 6 in partial shade and they really took off! It's October now and they are still going strong.
