Thompson & Morgan Vegetables Herb Basil Crimson King 150 Seed

£2.29

Basil - Crimson King

This is new British breeding for a 100% all purple leaved type with increased vigour and uniformity, and traditional cupped Genovese shaped leaves. It is an excellent ornamental edible basil, ideal for growing on the windowsill, or in containers or baskets outdoors in the summer.

Sow seed on the surface of good, free-draining seed compost. Cover with a fine sprinkling of vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and place at 20-25C until after germination which takes 14-21 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination. Keep compost barely moist until seedlings emerge to avoid stem rots. Transplant when large enough to handle into 7.5cm pots. Grow on in cooler conditions for a few days before planting out after risk of frost, 30cm apart, or into containers.
