Basil is America’s most popular herb, and for many of us, that means the familiar Sweet or Genovese Basil and its use in Italian and French cuisines. But there is a broader world of basils out there – different varieties, flavors, leaf sizes, and colors. Basils are important to many different cultures around the globe – beautiful garden basils; pollinator-attracting basils; and basils grown for function, for fragrance, and even for bouquets. Extension Master Gardeners Kathryn Kellam and Susan Wilhelm will introduce you to a wider world of basils and explain how to care for, harvest, use, and preserve exciting new basils as well as familiar favorites.
If you can’t join us for a live online presentation, video recordings of the sessions are posted to the Master Gardener Virtual Classroom.
