Tasty Thai Basil

I’ve bought Thai basil starts for several yrs from a local nursery, but this year I started my own from Pinetree ‘cause I want more! Lovely plant, pretty enough for pots on front steps. Can let it go to bloom (not to seed, of course) and use blossoms in salad or cooking. I keep cutting, dry in paper bags, and enjoy it all winter. Plants not large like Italian basils, but taste is great! I put 3-4 starts in 10” pots; it’s fine in open ground too, but I like to keep it close to the kitchen!
