Tu che hai coltivato il basico sacro, mi puoi suggerire come fare a comperare la pianta o i semi? Se sei disponibile a vendermi una piantina o i semi, te ne sono infinitamente grata...

Ciao Carmela, come più volte specificato questo sito non si occupa di vendita di piante e semi. Non credo tu possa reperire piante di basilico sacro o tulsi a Gennaio visto che come le altre varietà di basilico si semina in primavera, i semi si trovano facilmente in vivai specializzati o in negozi online.
