Seeds of Basil Marsellie. This French basil variety is called the queen of fragrance, with foliage in the garden or patio you’ll be wanting to brush past it! Marsellie is a perfect annual for growing in containers or scattering these seeds with annual plants in your garden. They will bring lots of bees and butterflies to your garden! Of course Basil is indispensable to any tomatoes recipe. The perfect size for a low hedge, Marselle makes an fragrant edging for the driveway or footpaths. Basil loves hot weather and plenty of sunshine, but it needs consistently moist, rich soil. Mulch the plants to retain moisture, and water heavily during dry spells. Harvest the plant before the cold weather sets in, as this will affect the leaves’ texture and flavor. Freeze entire stems, with the leaves still attached, for best flavor retention, or dry the leaves for seasoning. Growing to 18″.
