It has a tight compact growing habit and forms a perfectly spherical bush appearing as though having been pruned. Greek basil is sweeter than its Italian standard. It is pleasantly spicy with a taste that is somewhat like anise or cloves. This makes for a great container bush plant.
1/4 teaspoon of basil seeds. That is a lot of seed 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.
