Title

Basil Bush

Basil Bush is a small leaved variety with mild flavour. This half hardy annual grows to 25cm. Good used fresh in tomato dishes, salads and cheese

Basil thrives in rich, well drained soil, in a warm sheltered position. This variety is ideal for pots. Pick the leaves as required, best used fresh. Pinch out the tip of the main stem to encourage bushy growth or prevent plants from flowering

How to sow and grow Basil

Sow indoors from March 0.5cm deep in good quality soil. We plant several seeds per pot. The plants can be potted up and placed on a kitchen window or we will plant some in 1 or 2 litre pots and grow on as a companion plant to tomatoes in the greenhouse.

The plants can be grown outdoors from late May when the risk of frost has past at a space of 30cm apart. They are best grown in well-drained soil in a sheltered place in the garden.

Sow direct in drills, when the soil has warmed up in May and then thin to 30 cm spacing.

Can be grown all year round on the windowsill.
