Basil Tree is a non-stop harvest plant. Also known as Clove basil, this is a quite distinct species in being a much-branched, shrubby perennial, woody at the base. An agreeably, sweetly perfumed plant with fuzzy, lime-green leaves up to 4ins long, it bears dense spikes of small, pale yellow flowers.

 

You can grow this plant as the other basil species simply as a potted plant. The basil will develop a real woody trunk and a massive ball head. In summer it can be grown outside in the garden or on the terrace, in winter in the winter garden or in the window niche in the house.

 

Use in the kitchen

It is best to cut stems of 5 cm in length from which the leaves are plucked. At the interface, the plant branches and forms new stems and leaves. With generous harvest, the plant is cut back to the last leaf, even now the basil drives out again. The more shoots are removed, the bushier the plant becomes.

Grow your own basil tree

Pick a young basil plant with a straight, strong center drive and tie it to a support bar. All stronger side branches are removed. First, the shoot tip should gain in height and the trunk in thickness. Therefore, you continue to cut off all the side branches. The shoot tip is further directed upwards by also tying the new shoot to the rod.

 

Once the basil tree has reached the desired height, the shoot tip is cut three to four leaves above the desired crown approach. The tribe height is determined with this cut. By cutting the shoot tip, you initiate the branching of the crown. If you shorten the new side shoots again on three to four leaves, they branch off further. Over time, an ever denser, roundish crown forms. The tribe should be supported by a bar until it is strong enough to support the weight of the crown.
