Official Name:Ocimum basilicum

General description :Basil is commonly used fresh in cooked recipes. It is generally added at the last moment, as cooking quickly destroys the flavour. The fresh herb can be kept for a short time in plastic bags in the refrigerator, or for a longer period in the freezer, after being blanched quickly in boiling water. The dried herb also loses most of its flavour, and what little flavour remains tastes very different, with a weak coumarin flavour, like hay.

How to grow:

  • When: Basil is easy to sow from seed and is relatively quick to germinate.
  • Propagation: In addition to sowing basil from seed, a cutting of basil will easily root when placed in water. Select a four-inch section of basil that has not yet flowered. Roots will form within a week. Transplant the basil directly into the garden or container once a healthy root system is apparent
  • Soil: Basil does its best in well-drained, moist soil with a neutral pH. 
  • Sun: Basil grows well in warm environments that receive about six hours of sun each day. 
  • Water: Give basil water when the soil is dry to the touch, doing your best to water the plant at its base and not all over its leaves.
  • Spacing: Depending upon the variety, basil grows anywhere from 12 to 24 inches in height. Space basil plants 12 to 16 inches apart.
