Basil 47

I wonder whether Harry Potter knew that basil might be used as an antidote for basilisk’s venom? I read the books and watched all the movies and not until today did I realize the connection between basil and basilisk. It seems so evident now!2013CDN.qxd

Today I am reviewing Richter’s Herb and Vegetable Catalog. They have 47 varieties of basil seeds. Enough said.

Besides a huge selection of herb seeds, they also have organic dried herbs, herb plants, and liquid extracts. They are what they claim, “Herb Specialists”. They are located near Toronto, Canada. They offer several free seminars beginning in February. Might be an excuse to go to Toronto.
Note: They sponsor SeedZoo, a project where you can grow endangered plant species.
