Also, what do you know about holy basil, I believe that I need to try and use this product as what I’ve been reading is, it is a great stress reducer, which is what I’m looking for..... will it grow here- northern Alberta (zone 1). Do you have an alternative for this holy basil, if I can’t get it or grow it here??

Holy basil is an annual plant that is easy to grow from seed and is available for purchase from Richter’s. You might need to use grow lights to start them early indoors and place them in a warm location in the garden after the last frost.
