Grow Your Own Italian Herbs Starter Kit
We are huge fans of Italian cooking at Purple Bloom Seeds.
Rustic, homemade tomato, basil and red pepper pizza; sweet genovese green pesto and homemade rosemary loaves are in constant demand in our kitchen. So we have bundled together the herbs we most enjoy on our homemade Italian takeaway nights for you to gift the foodies in your life!
Basil (sweet genovese):
Basil is a hardy plant that is easy and quick to grow from seed. Preferring well lit windowsills or well drained sunny garden flowerpots, basil is a staple of any kitchen herb collection. Sweet genovese is by far the most fragrant and superior tasting of basils. It is the kingpin of any green pesto.
Marjoram is the perfect windowsill herb, and all-rounder when it comes to it’s culinary uses: soups, stews, salads, dressings and seasonings.
Rosemary smells and tastes delicious; as much at home in a scented garden border as it is one of the only herbs that truly keeps it’s fragrant taste whilst cooking. We love making rosemary ciabatta and sprinkling some sprigs to a Sunday nut roast (not Italian cooking, but it does taste amazing)!
