Plant type: annual
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 60-70 days
Plant spacing: 9-12”
Pinch: when 8” tall
How to Grow:
Basil is very sensitive to cold; wait until the weather has warmed to plant out. Plant 9''-12'' apart, pinch when 8'' tall.
Harvest when stems begin to toughen and firm or as soon as flowers begin to form. Cut foliage is prone to wilting in the heat, so harvest during the coolest part of the day and place directly into water to rest a few hours before arranging. Stems will last 7-10 days, often rooting in the vase. Does not like the cooler
