Seeding Instructions - Seed indoors & transfer outdoors after the last May frost, takes up to 14 days to germinate. Basil likes lots of sun, heat, & shelter from harsh wind. Grow in well-draining soil. Amend soil with peat, compost, & worm castings.

Growing On & Harvest - Basil leaves can be picked when the plant is ~12" tall. Prune off flower stalks to keep energy in the foliage. Feed with veggie food every two weeks & bone meal once a month.
