Product Info

This classic, aromatically complimentary combo tastes just like an Italian summer. With the tomato plant growing at its own pace into a tall and sturdy stalk and the basil into a softer and bushier plant, it's no wonder they were a match made in alfresco heaven. Try growing them together with friends like mint or marigold and, depending on your preference, you might consider adding soy sauce or salt for extra flavour in your meal.

  • Non-GMO cherry tomato and basil seeds encased in recycled paper and coffee grounds
  • Makes growing your own veggies and herbs from scratch easier than ever

Review by Neil D. on 19 November 2020

Verified Owner

Third one. 4 x basil plus 1 x cherry tomato in sheet. Only one basil plant made it which makes it probably the most expensive herb around. Not recommended.

I would not recommend this product to a friend.
