Botanical name: Perilla frutescens var. crispa

Dimensions of the bottomless pot are 90 mm square × 150 mm deep. The square shape and bottomless design produces beautifully straight and deep roots with no spiralling whatsoever. This gives these young plants every advantage once planted out.

Known as shiso in Japan. Japanese perilla differs from the Korean version in that it has smaller, more serrated leaves and a stronger taste.

This popular Asian herb with frilly leaves tastes somewhat of mint and anise, with spearmint, basil, cinnamon, cumin, nutmeg and even gingery notes described by others.

Grows to a small bush about 20 cm wide and 50 cm high.

Ornamental in its own right even if not eaten!
