Botanical Name: Ocimum basilicum

The lemon flavoured leaves add taste and zest to salads and make an ideal accompaniment to fish and sauces. The plants are easy to grow but prefer warm conditions and fertile soils. The glossy green leaves also make this Basil an attractive addition to the ornamental garden.


We hope you enjoy these herb seeds, just another great example of  vegetable seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!

How To Grow

Sow in the growing position, 5mm (1/4in) deep, spaced 30cm (12in) apart. Keep moist. Seeds can be sown year-round in pots. Basil thrives best in a sheltered position with well-drained soil. Staking the plants with bamboo prevents them collapsing in adverse weather. Pick the leaves as needed and remove flower heads to keep the plants producing vigorous leaves.
