MASTER GARDENER Seeds – Basil Thai

MASTER GARDENER Seeds – Basil Thai

MASTER GARDENER by Mr Fothergills

Botanical Name: Ocimum basilicum

A wonderful aromatic herb with beautiful purple-green leaves. It has a mild licorice or aniseed smell & flavour making it perfect for many Asian dishes.

It makes an excellent potted herb and can be grown successfully indoors or outdoors. Useful as a border plant and can be grown well in pots and containers. Basil prefers warm conditions and full sun.

How To Grow

Sow in the growing position, 5mm (1/4in) deep, spaced 30cm (12in) apart. Keep moist. Seeds can be sown year-round in pots. Basil thrives best in a sheltered position with well-drained soil. Staking the plants with bamboo prevents them collapsing in adverse weather. Pick the leaves as needed and remove flower heads to keep the plants producing vigorous leaves.
Can be grown all year round indoors in good natural light – a northfacing windowsill is perfect.
For a continuous supply, make sowings at two to three weekly intervals.
Pick a few leaves from each plant so that they regrow quickly. Seedlings emerge 7-10 days.
