Teaser: Basil is the King of Herbs. Versatile and indispensable. Aromatic and romantic. The most important flavouring in tomato sauces and pesto. This annual grows to 60cm (2').
Description:

Heirloom Herb

Basil can be grown indoors on a sunny window or under lights during the winter.  Outdoors, basil is a low maintenance plant & prolific producer -- all you really need to do is provide water when necessary. This is no doubt the most important herb in flavouring tomato sauces and pesto. We recommend continually harvesting leaves to delay flower production as flowers normally signal an end to vegetative growth. Plants can grow to 60 cm (2') in height although 30-45 cm (12-18") is more common.  Annual

How To Grow Sow seed outdoors in mid to late May, then every two weeks through August, or start them inside and transplant after the danger of frost has passed. Basil can be grown indoors on a sunny window or under lights during the winter. Indoor Basil plants are not long lived nor do they produce significantly. Indoor plants tend to be lanky and produce smaller leaves. Outdoors, Basil is a low maintenance plant & prolific-- all you really need to do is provide water when necessary. Lightly feed with a general-purpose fertilizer as too much can adversely affect the production of the essential oils responsible for flavour and aroma. Basil plants are grown for their leaves and flower clusters.
