Organically grown, well-rooted Perilla/Shiso plants in 8cm pots. Prefers rich, well-drained soils and full sun. Plants do not like to be over-watered and it is best to water soil at roots rather than leaves to prevent leaf burn. Grows to 90cm/3ft with pretty, crinkled, purple leaves. Leaves smell spicy and taste mild and a little like ginger. Use young leaves as an interesting salad leaf or as a garnish or flavouring.
