Basil, Pesto Perpetuo

Basil, Pesto Perpetuo

Basil, Pesto Perpetuo is a very decorative Basil with striking cream and pale green variegated leaves. Although it is a perennial, it is best treated as an annual in the UK. If taken into the house from September, it will last longer than many other Basils.
We advise that Basils are kept in a glasshouse or on a windowsill but can be placed outside during warm settled weather. Try not to water in the evening. Cut out flowers to encourage leaf production. Always use sharp scissors when cropping
