Basil, Sweet – Ocimum basilicum

Basil, Sweet – Ocimum basilicum is a tender annual that requires full sun. Water and feed freely. Famous for the unique flavour it imparts to tomato and pasta dishes. This variety is the classic Genovese variety. We advise that Basils are kept in a glasshouse or on a windowsill but can be placed outside during warm settled weather. Try not to water in the evening. Cut out flowers to encourage leaf production. Always use sharp scissors when cropping
