Have you ever thought of growing your own kitchen herbs in pots or window boxes? Picking a few leaves of fresh basil, celery, parsley, thyme, dill or mint is a pleasure we should not deny ourselves. There are many varieties of basil, however, today, I would like to introduce Thai basil to you.
Thai basil originates from South East Asia and is commonly called Oriental or Asian basil. Thai basil is a cooking herb with a lovely aroma similar to sweet basil, with purple veined attractive leaves and purple flowers.
