Grow Your Own Basil

Basil (Ocimum basilicum) is sometimes referred to as the king of herbs.

It comes in many varieties, which I'll cover further on in this article and is a staple of many delicious recipes, such as basil pesto and tomato and basil soup. I've also included these and many other recipes in this article.
