Basil - Ornamental Mix - Ocimum basilicum

Annual An attractive mix of Cinnamon, Purple Opal, Spicy Globe, and Italian Large Leaf Basil. These showy basils will spice up your yard and your dinner. Each has its own distinct flavor, color, and growth habit that create variety that is sure to delight. The seeds are not color coded.

Soil and Water: Plant in full sun in well-draining soil. Basil does not require fertile soil, however it performs best when organic matter and nitrogen are added. Provide even water throughout development.

Planting and Growing: Start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost, or sow directly once soil temperatures have reached at least 70°F. Pinch ends during development for a bushy plant. Basil has a very low germination rate; it is not uncommon to have germination rates of 60%. Sow heavily and thin to the most vigorous seedlings.

Harvesting and Storage: Regular harvesting will keep production high. Use leaves fresh or frozen. Remove flower stalks to extend harvest. Be sure to make the last harvest prior to first frost.

Did You Know? The ancient Greeks and Romans believed basil seeds would only germinate if you cursed and shouted while sowing the seed.
