I've had this plant in a pot for a few years and can't remember buying it or it ever having flowers. At the beginning of summer I planted it in the garden. Still no sign of buds. It's a low ground mound at the moment. Any ideas to jog this appalling memory.
I am really not good at all with none veg/herb plants but there are other plants in the ocimum family which are grown ornamentally. I was just struck by the similarity with your plant.
Maybe try googling ocimum and see if anything looks the same? Or wait and see if one the many v clever people on here can help you
I did google Ocimum and it does look very similar, but I can't ever remember buying a basil plant.
@rachelQrtJHBjb I looked at a normal phox at B&Q today but I think the leaves on it are narrower and longer than this one but that's not to say other varieties haven't got the same leaf. I tried googling but all the plants are covered in flowers and so not easy to see the leaves.
