Kitchen Herbs Scented Basil Trio Seed Mix

Kitchen Herbs Scented Basil Trio Seed Mix

Flavorful Basil Ensemble

The Garden Kitchen Herbs Scented Basil Trio offers an aromatic blend of basil cultivars originating from various regions, each presenting unique fragrances, appearances, and culinary uses. Basil, scientifically known as Ocimum basilicum, holds a rich historical significance and is celebrated for its diverse flavors.

This trio encompasses three distinct basil variants: Genovese, Lemon, and Purple Ruffles. Genovese basil, originating from Italy, boasts large, aromatic leaves with a sweet, robust flavor, perfect for pesto and Italian cuisine. Lemon basil, with its citrusy aroma and mild lemon taste, adds a refreshing twist to salads and seafood dishes. Purple Ruffles basil showcases ornamental foliage, with deep purple, serrated leaves and a mild, sweet flavor, serving as a visual and flavorful addition to salads and garnishes.

Cultivating these basil varieties from seed demands specific growing conditions. Start seeds indoors about 6-8 weeks before the last frost date, using well-draining soil. Once seedlings have developed a few sets of leaves, transplant them into nutrient-rich soil with ample sunlight exposure.

Basil thrives in warm environments with plenty of sunlight, requiring at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily. Consistent watering and well-drained soil are crucial for optimal growth. With proper care, this Scented Basil Trio flourishes, offering both visual charm and a versatile range of flavors to elevate culinary creations.

Planting & Care

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

Planting & 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. Sow heavily and thin to the most vigorous seedlings. Basil will not perform below 50°F; pot indoors during winter for a year-round supply.

Harvesting & 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.
