The lime basil plant
is compact, 12-14in tall with small bright green lance-shaped leaves. Lime Basil
is an attractive addition to mixed borders and it is perfect for container growing. Plant this basil
in areas of heavy foot traffic as contact with the leaves will release its zesty aroma, especially on warm summer days. Just one brush of the leaves releases an invigorating lime scent that will permeate an entire room in seconds!
The lime basil flowers
do not need to be pinched constantly but the plant will produce more leaves if the flowers are removed frequently.
As with all basils
, you can also use this basil in the garden as a natural insecticide to repel aphids, mites, and tomato horn worms.
