Description

A super-sized basil with purple leaves! Basil ‘Sally’ makes a lovely ornamental variety for the ‘Potager’, herb garden or summer containers. A large ‘lettuce-leaved’ variety sporting softly crinkled leaves flushed with dark purple it looks great combined with hot-coloured annuals such as Calendula. Add the big leaves of ‘Sally’ to sliced tomatoes and sprinkle with the calendula petals to create a tasty and colourful summer salad. The leaves have the same soft texture and intense, clove-like flavour as their smaller cousins but their large size makes them perfect for wrapping meat, fish or veg before barbecuing or roasting. Height: 45cm (18”). Spread: 30cm (12”).

Sowing
Sow in a propagator on a windowsill or thinly in pots or trays in a greenhouse at approx 10-15C using a good quality compost. Cover seeds with 0.5cm compost. (Germination 14-21 days). Grow on, planting out when the frost risk has passed 20-25cm apart. Can also be sown thinly direct outside at a depth of 0.5cm. Grows best in well-drained soil in a sunny position of in the greenhouse. Remove flowers to prolong leaf harvest.
More Info
When all risk of frost has passed, harden basil plants off before planting out in a sheltered sunny position in well drained, fertile sandy soil; or potting into patio containers, window boxes, or windowsill pots indoors. Water moderately taking care to avoid splashing the leaves. Harvest basil leaves regularly when required to promote fresh new growth and pinch out any flowers that appear to prolong the harvest period. Culinary note: Basil can be dried or frozen for using later on, or added to oils and vinegars for extra flavour.
