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 Genovese Basil plants do reasonably well, if provided enough bright light. Outdoors, Genovese 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.
