Basil Love

May 13, 2022 @ 10:00 am 11:30 am EDT


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.
