Ocimum basilicum

Basil with a lovely combination of lemon and basil scent. Used fresh, dried or frozen. Goes well in salads and soups and particularly nice with fish and shrimp. Use Lemon basil instead of sweet basil for a fresh twist to vegetable dishes. New shoots are continuously harvested before the plant goes into flower. Fits well outdoors, in a pot on a patio/balcony and in a greenhouse. Basil can be grown indoors all year round. Thrives in a warm and sunny location in nutrient-rich, well-drained soil. Feed regularly.

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.
