Basil – Perennial 1.1L coir



Ocimum gratissimum. Also known as Clove Basil and Tree Basil.

Popular in south eastern Asian cooking, this fast growing perennial has deep green foliage and soft purple flower spikes.

It is easy to grow and offers a spicy clove-like aroma. The flavours partner well with chives, garlic, ginger, mint, oregano and turmeric. The leaves can be blended with other herbs to make herbal tea.

The plant enjoys a full sun to part shade position in fertile, moist soil. It’ll grow to about 1.2m high by 1m wide. Harvest regularly.


You can plant the coir pot directly into the ground, which will eliminate root disturbance and help keep your plant happy. The roots will make their way through the pot and into the soil. The pot itself will decompose within two months. Alternatively, you can use it as a decorative pot plant as the coir pot will last between 12-18 months (then you can plant it in the ground).
