Basil - Emily

Compact version of the classic Genovese type that is superior for pot culture, having shorter stem-length between leaf nodes. Widely recognized to be longer-lasting when cut, all of which make "Emily" a better subject for market growers and home gardeners.

What are the pros? Good flavour.

What are the cons? Rangy plants, small leaves.

Review:

I found the Emily basil plants to be rangy. Unlike most other basils I've grown, when pinched, the Emily basil plants did not readily make more leaves. The plant description prepared me for "compact" plants, but the leaves were nothing near the size of a Genovese basil leaves. For me, the two good feature of Emily basil are the flavour of the basil and the attractiveness of the plant. As I have unplanted seeds, I'll try again. After all, this IS a basil!

Review:

I first grew this plant last year and loved it. I let one go to seed this year and the bees and hummingbirds loved the little white flowers. I got tons of seeds to share and save. I donated a bunch of seeds from my plant to my daughter's school garden :D This basil has such a great fragrance and taste. It grows quickly and easily. I took clippings from one plant and started more. I have had so much extra basil from just a few plants that I didn't know what to do with it lol. I have been sharing with my mom and even my neighbors. I also have a bunch drying right now for the spice jar. I will be growing this every year, thank you!

Review:

First year growing Emily Basil. Started from seed indoors. Transplanted and thinned down to 3-4 plants per 3" pot. Planted three of the 3" pots into 2 squares in my SFG. Love that this is a bushier style and pruning at the nodes only makes it bushier! Leaves aren't as big as when I grew the Genovese previously (at least I don't think they are). But the Emily looks great! Tastes great! Highly recomment if you want a shorter, bushier basil plant!

What are the pros? Did great in a pot, compact

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

I started seeds indoors under a lamp and then transplated them to little pots for my back yard. Once the weather warmed up the basil took off. I had so much basil I was making pesto and freezing it and drying it too. Before the frost hit I brought in the pots and they are actually doing good inside now on my window seal. All summer I constantly picked off any type of flowers and cut it down a lot to keep the plant short. Great plant I will def grow again.
