Even if you do not care for the taste or smell of basil (Yes there are plenty of us who don’t) it is one of the essential herbs to plant in the garden.

Basil flowers attract all sort of beneficial insects to the garden.
The odoriferous smell keeps critters away and masks the smell of even tomato pollen.

Another great thing about basil is that there are many varieties to choose from. Basil comes in many shapes, sizes and colors. Some have very strong pungent taste and aroma, and others, like holy basil, smell like sweet honey nectar flowers.

Experiment with planting basil in borders and rows of vegetable gardens. See the difference basil makes in the garden for your self.
