Product Information

Red Basil
“ocimum basilicum”
Very showy annual plant with aromatic dark-purple leaves and pink flowers. Fresh leaves can be used as a seasoning to cucumber souring, and dried leaves in salads, sauces, casseroles, roast meat and fish.
A half-hardy annual, it should be sown under glass in spring for planting out after the frosts. Alternatively, sow where it is to remain in mid- to late-May Basil needs well-drained soil and a sunny but sheltered position. Either remove the flower buds or cut the leaves before the flower opens. Some foliage should be left on however for a second harvest in the autumn.
Seeds per packet (approx.): 195
