6Ocimum basilicum

This decorative, dark red basil grows 30-40 cm high and can be used in a wide range of dishes. The leaves can be used fresh or dried. Placed sunny, basil is heat-demanding and cold-sensitive plant. Can be grown both indoors in the window frame or outdoors in containers.

Plant outdoors only from mid-May-July. Thrives best in humus- and nutrient-rich, well-drained soil.

Pinch out growing tips for bushier plants. The removed tips can be rooted for more plants.

Harvested basil can be frozen for later use. Place whole leaves in a plastic bag and crush with fingers after the leaves have frozen.

Do not allow the soil to dry out. Do not allow to flower.

Pre-cultivation: For planting out when the lowest night temperature is 15°C. Sow sparsely in moist soil. Set at room temp. Replant 3-4 plants/pot in fertilized soil. Use additional lighting for early sowing. Can be grown all year round if inside.
