Basil: Thai - Large Leaved
Approximately 50 Seeds
If you like to dabble in a little thai cooking, you really should be growing these. They add a slightly aniseed/basil flavour to dishes and can be used raw in salads or tossed into a nice thai curry.
- Sow March to May in trays, pots, etc. of good seed compost in a warm place to maintain an ideal temperature of 55-60F.
- Sow in well-drained compost, just covering the seed with compost, but do not exclude light, which is beneficial to germination.
- Germination usually takes 14-30 days.
- Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle.
- Harden off and plant out 30cm (12in) apart when all risk of frost has passed.
- Prefers a well-drained soil and a sheltered sunny site. Can also be grown on a sunny windowsill.
