500 mg (about 300 seeds) Cinnamon Basil has reddish stems, purple flowers, and small- to medium-sized dark green leaves. The plants can grow as much as 3 feet tall and 3 feet wide. The leaves have a cinnamon-like taste and odor.
Cinnamon Basil is good for uses other than cooking, too. Some garden pests don’t like the smell of it, so gardeners grow it just to keep bugs out of their gardens. On the other hand, most people like the smell of Cinnamon Basil. For that reason, it is sometimes used to make potpourri. Potpourri is a mixture of things that give off a pleasant smell, like cedar shavings, dried flowers, cinnamon bark, and dried herbs, such as Cinnamon Basil. Leave a basket of potpourri in a room, and soon the nice fragrance fills the room.

I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
