You'll enjoy a wide variety of Basil plants with great flavors! Very easy to grow and extremely popular for those that can't decide on which variety to try in their own garden!

All varieties differ in flavor, and for each dish, there is a pet. The leaves are of various sizes, green, red, and purple. Used in cooking in fresh, dried, and frozen form. Basil perfectly complements vegetable dishes, soups, salads and sauces, and is also used for flavoring during salting and canning.

The peak flavor experience is fresh from the garden and used soon after, though it retains its unique flavors and aromas well when made into pesto and frozen. Drying is the last resort, as it loses most of the aromatic oils. But we have found that basil dried from your garden is so much more flavorful than commercial dried basil.

This would be an excellent choice to grow if you are interested in using basil in a multitude of ways in your kitchen and in bouquets. All basils, when in flower, are an excellent nectar source for pollinators. Honeybees in particular go bonkers over basil!

Companion Planting
Basil does well with asparagus and helps tomatoes overcome pest insects and disease while improving the growth and flavor of both. It is best to grow the shorter basil plants alongside or parallel to the tomato plants instead of among them in their shade.

Peppers – both sweet and hot – like basil alongside them, as do beans, beets, cabbage, and eggplant. Herbs that like basil nearby are oregano and chamomile.

Basil repels mosquitoes and most flies, so keep a couple of planted pots near doorways and entrances.

Common rue and sage are antagonistic to basil, so don’t plant them near each other.

Growing Tip
Sow seeds indoors just on the surface of the soil. Keep moist, not letting the seeds dry out between watering. DO NOT cover the seeds with soil! SOIL Temperature for Germination: 70F.
Sowing: Year-round - greenhouse in winter and outdoors in summer. Make successive sowings for continuous summer supplies.
When basil starts to flower, it will stop growing leaves – so pinch the flower heads off to encourage new leaf growth.
