CULTIVATE AND EAT JAPANESE BASIL£7.50
Made in Japan from a traditional rice bag, the growing kit combines a paper lined bag with peat mix and seeds. Just open the top and add water to get the plant started. When the plant has matured, transport to a larger pot or the garden.
Cultivate and Eat is an effort to get involved in every step of our meal, starting from the very beginning. Their kits contain rare Japanese seeds you can grow right at home to make delicious Japanese dishes. Just add water directly into the paper bag (it is lined with plastic to prevent decay) and begin to grow your own greens, transplanting to a larger pot when ready.
Shiso is a fragrant Japanese basil that is high in calcium and iron. Its leaves can be used to wrap an onigiri (rice ball) or fry in tempura batter for a crispy side dish. The leaves can also be used to wrap fish before grilling, or dried to make tea. This ingenious cultivation kit includes seeds, peat mix, and growing instructions.
