Cultivate and eat dark opal basil

£7.99

Growing kit for growing a dark opal basil plant. Perfect for the gardener in your life.

Made in Japan from a traditional rice bag, the growing kit combines a paper lined bag with peat mix and seeds. Just open the top and add water to get the plant started. When the plant has matured, transport to a larger pot or the garden.

The cultivate and eat kits contain rare Japanese seeds you can grow right at home to make delicious Japanese dishes. Just add water directly into the paper bag (it is lined with plastic to prevent decay) and begin to grow your own greens, transplanting to a larger pot when ready.

Very similar in flavour to regular basil, but with hints of more exotic anise and ginger. Leaves range from green to deep purple or both. Useful as a garnish for Italian, Thai and Vietnamese dishes. This ingenious cultivation kit includes seeds, peat mix, and growing instructions, all packaged up and tied ready to go.
