Growing guide for Basil Green Seeds

Planting instructions

Start the seed germination process indoors. Basil is super sensitive to the cold, so whether you are transplanting seedlings from indoors or have plants in the ground, watch the early spring temperatures and cover if necessary.

Plant the seeds/seedlings in the ground about ¼-inch deep and 10 to 12 inches apart. They should rise to around 12 to 24 inches in altitude. For smaller plants, plant farther apart (approximately 16 to 24 inches).

Remember to lift away the flower heads as soon as they sprout to make sure that the leaves keep rising.

Keep watering the plant as per requirement and the temperature outside. Soil can be fed with manure or cow dung for a long lasting produce.

Growing Requirements

watering

Keep soil consistently moist throught the growing season. Give water when the soil is dry to touch. Water the plant on the base and not over the leaves.

pests

Some of the pests that attack basil leaves are Japanese Beetles and Soft-Bodied Insects - such as Aphids, Whiteflies etc. The pests can cause white/black spots on the leaves, slim, blotches, yellow leaves or lesions and gray mold.

soil

Basil grows well in rich, moist, well-drained loamy soil with a pH of 6 to 7

spot

Basil needs 6 to 8 hours of sun everyday. A sunny window sill is the best spot.

temperature

Basil is very sensitive to cold and even a slight cold can kill it. Basil likes warmer temperatures over 50°F/10°C. Ideal time to plant would be 2 weeks after the last frost in spring.

how to harvest

The best time to harvest is right when the plant begins to bud (before the flowers bloom). Or if you don't have time to harvest any leaves, just pinch off the flowering portion.

If pruned regularly, twelve basil plants will produce 4 to 6 cups of leaves per week. Be sure to only harvest up to 2/3 of the entire plant, so it can continue producing.

The best method for storing basil is freezing. Freezing will prevent the plant from losing any of its flavor. To quick-freeze basil, dry whole sprigs of basil and pack them in airtight plastic bags.

Another storage method is drying the basil (Some of the flavor might be lost).
