Get to Know Basil

Enrich your green-scape with the king of herbs – basil!


Outdoors is a must, with constant full sunlight. It’s recommended to start growing after periods of frost have subsided. 


Water regularly to ensure soil is moist. This means checking up every other day, and possibly everyday during the summer. 


Constant harvesting and pruning after growing up to eight leaves will allow for successful growth. Once flowers can be seen, it’s best to prune them too to maintain that top flavour of the leaves.
