    Basil Mrs. Burns Lemon 

    Type: Plant

    4'' Pot

    Filling a room with its clean, citrusy scent, this easy-to-grow heat-loving foliage is a wonderful addition to summer bouquets. The bright green foliage and white flowers are fragrant, and we combine them with zinnias for a fast, beautiful bouquet from midsummer through autumn.

    Plant type: annual
    Height: 20-24”
    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.

    Harvesting/Vase Life:
    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
