This is a very nice addition to the garden and great for Thai cooking. The leaves have a the flavor of anise with a bit of a spice but you can still taste the "traditional" basil. The green leaves can get to 4 inches in length and 2 inches wide and the plant will sprout beatiful purple flowers as well. This will mature on 70 to 75 days from sowing.
1/4 teaspoon of basil seeds. That is a lot of seeds that will last for years if stored properly.
Direct sow or plant seed indoors 4 to 6 weeks before garden soil temperature is consistently 65 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. You can scatter plant or plant 4-6 inches apart for full size plants. Basil needs warmth to grow, plant in full sun. Remove flowers for more leaf production. You can take cuttings and put them in water to root for replacement plants. Plant new seeds every 2-3 weeks for continuous production.
