My partner and I tried this mini-basil and loved it. We let one grow into a little bonsai tree that sat on a windowsill in our kitchen. It had a lovely shape, gave off a delicious fragrance if you brushed up against it, and lasted about a year before it started getting ragged-looking. (It is a bit of a nuisance, though, to cook with the tiny leaves.)Review by Sandy (on 6/25/13)
