Grow Notes
Some of these seeds may revert to their green form, use those too or pick out as they germinate.

Growing to 50cm tall, place them 50cm apart and place in part or full sun, in moist well drained soils. To promote healthier, bushier plants, many gardeners may choose to pinch basil seedlings early in the season to help promote the plants’ branching habit.

Frequent and consistent watering will result in lush, green growth from plants without the need for frequent fertilization. At harvest time, make certain only to remove about one-fourth of the plant to ensure continued basil harvests throughout the season.

Sow
Growers have several options when starting basil seed. Though it is possible to start basil seeds indoors in seed trays, many gardeners find that direct sowing the seed in Spring and Summer is both efficient and effective. To direct sow, simply broadcast the seeds into a well amended and weed free garden bed and water thoroughly. Or plant 50cm apart at 3mm depth.

5-10 days at 18-35°C
