Basil, Genovese (Ocimum basilicum) seeds, organic


Family: Mint (Lamiaceae)

A sweet lettuce leaf type that is tall, uniform, and slow to bolt.  Leaves gently savoyed.  One of the best for making pesto.  These do fine in large pots in the greenhouse, solarium, sunny window, or summer porch.  Standard basil culture.  Sow seeds in pots or directly in the spring garden.  Make sure the garden soil has really warmed up before direct seeding.  If planting in pots, then make sure to harden off the seedlings to wind and sun before transplanting, and don’t transplant out too early, wait until the soil has truly warmed.  Thataway the plant (and you) won’t suffer from transplant shock.  Space 1 foot apart.
