Description

Shiso Japanese Basil is an extremely ornamental herb that adds incredible flavor to any dish. The flavor is that of basil with hints of cinnamon and cumin.

Suggested Planting Requirements: Shiso enjoys rich, light, well-drained soil. Because of the heavy development of leaves, fertilizing is important and may be done organically with compost or manure. Keeping basil evenly moist will prevent bolting. Mulch may be added to keep moisture levels even.

Growing Recommendations: This annual must be grown in full sun during spring and fall. Southern California growers may grow basil year-round in frost-free areas. For cooler areas, place shiso in the warmest part of the yard. In hot climates, place in a cooler area getting near to full sun.

Harvesting & Storing: Flavor in shiso is at its best before it flowers, but you can still harvest well into the blooming period. To extend the life and flavor of a plant, continuously remove flowers as they appear.

Once the plant has gone to flower, don’t waste the opportunity to feed the pollinators! Flowering herbs can be a great addition to your pollinator or butterfly garden. Beneficial insects will enjoy the blooms!
