My wife's pride and joy is this little bad boy right here. The shiso plant is a Japanese Basil that is regularly used in many Japanese dishes and my wife has not been to fortunate to get a seed to grow until now. I am so happy this little guy is growing strong. She read that for shiso you really need to soak the seeds for a few days before sowing them. I honestly didn't think it was going to work, but surprisingly they took off and now we have several small shiso plants. Shiso has single handily saved my garden, because I think if it weren't for this little rascal my wife would have not become as interested as she is now in growing healthy veggies. Thank you Shiso!!
