To grow African Blue Basil, you must take cuttings from an existing plant, there are no seeds for this plant. It must get at least 2-3 hours of sunlight a day. It can be grown with filtered light such as under a tree or in a bright window indoors. If you forget to water it for about a month, and it wilts drastically, water it and it will look as good as new.
Prune occasionally for a more bushy form by cutting off the top about a third.
Cut some African Blue basil for herb bouquets and for garnish at the table.
