Lemon basil that smells like anise?
I'm growing some lemon basil from Ferry Morse seed. I started the seeds directly in Miracle Gro potting mix, and I think the fertilizer was too much because the seedlings have been burned badly. But they're not dead and I'm hoping they outgrow it and come back fine.
What I noticed is, some of them smell similar to anise when I rub the leaves. But some smell like regular lemon basil. I'm not sure why, but I'll grow them all and see how they turn out when they're bigger (assuming they'll survive the fertilizer ordeal). Anybody have ideas on this? Anise-smelling lemon basil?
