History:

Blue Spice Basil, a variant of the traditional basil (Ocimum basilicum), stands out for its unique aroma and flavor profile. This basil variety has gradually earned its place in the gardens of those who appreciate its distinct characteristics. Originating from a cross between various basil species, Blue Spice Basil represents a harmonious blend of traditional and exotic flavors.


Uses:

Blue Spice Basil is highly regarded for its versatile flavor that combines the familiar basil taste with a unique spicy, vanilla undertone. It's an excellent choice for adding a twist to classic basil dishes, including pesto, salads, and pasta. Beyond its culinary use, the plant's fragrance makes it a great addition to aromatic gardens and can be used in potpourris and herbal infusions.


Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:

For optimal growth, Blue Spice Basil requires a warm, sunny environment and well-drained soil. It can be planted directly in the garden or started indoors and transplanted after the last frost. Sow the seeds approximately 1/4 inch deep, spacing them about 10-12 inches apart. Regular watering is essential for maintaining healthy growth, but avoid overwatering. The plant has a bushy, robust growth habit and can be pruned regularly to encourage fuller growth and prevent flowering.


Blue Spice Basil not only brings culinary diversity to your kitchen but also adds an aromatic and visually appealing aspect to your garden. Its ability to attract pollinators like bees and butterflies further enhances its value in a sustainable garden setting.
