Perennial Basil and Mexican Tarragon

We now have many Perennial Basil plants in our garden, all from just one original plant. We have also given away many small plants to others as it is such a fantastic plant. It is delicious as part of a Tomato and Basil salad, recipe here, or as the main ingredient in a Basil Pesto. As well, it attracts hundreds of bees and is beautiful to look at. Here you can see the Basil growing beside a Mexican Tarragon, we had no idea how lovely the flowers would be and are looking forward to tasting it soon.


  1. The salad sounds delicious. I love the simplicity of it.

  2. Using home grown produce makes it delicious too!
