Thompson & Morgan Herb Basil Large Leaved 250 Seed

£1.99

Basil - Large Leaved

This is the largest leaved basil producing very large, bright green, slightly puckered leaves with a similar taste and aroma to the very popular Genovese basil. It makes the perfect addition to pesto and adds an aromatic flavour to tomato and egg dishes.

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 on the dry side at all times, water lightly as seedlings emerge. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm pots. Grow on in cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm apart.
