Product Details


Sweet herb basil seed are the best-known basil. A very popular basil with large sweet leaves and used in a huge range of Mediterranean dishes.

Plant Class: Half Hardy Annual (HHA).

Sow and Grow: Sow and grow indoors for all year round crops. Sow 0.5 cm (1/4-inch) deep, in small pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20 degree C (60-68 degree F) is ideal. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. For earlier outdoor crops, sow indoors March-May. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into warm, well-drained soil, 20 cm (8-inch) apart, during May-July. Alternatively, plants can be grown on a light windowsill. Or sow outdoors March-May for ease, where they are to crop, 0.5 cm (1/4-inch) deep, directly into finely-prepared, warm, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 20 cm (8-inch) apart.

For a continuous supply, make sowings at two to three week intervals. Harvest: Leaves are best picked immediately before use (outdoor crops from June).
