Boxwood Basil

ncBoxwoodBasilnm

This fall I decided to try growing a basil plant inside so I could use it for cooking during the winter. I have a really nice, large sunny window in one of my rooms and thought it would be the perfect spot for a pot of basil.

I decided to try a Boxwood Basil plant, which I purchased at Lowe’s. Boxwood Basil has much, much smaller leaves than other varieties of basil, but the flavor and aroma are the same. It’s great to be able to pick some tiny leaves from this plant and use them fresh in salads, soups and other things…there’s nothing like fresh basil! My little basil plant is doing so well by the sunny window, too. I just water it a little every other day.

  1. I hadn’t heard of boxwood basil, but it looks so bushy and compact, I might try growing it in the ornamental garden!

    By the way, your food photography skills are amazing, and I’m getting super-hungry looking at your site…

  2. I love this.. so pretty and wonderful to cook with fresh herbs all year long.. I am going to give it a try soon.. I have a wonderful spot in the kitchen with sunshine :)
