Thai Holy Basil adds a wonderful aniseed flavour to food. Good in salads or added at the last minute of cooking to add that definitive Thai flavour.

Sow indoors into a tray filled with seed compost, keep at 18-20 degrees and keep moist. After germination (which takes 8-10 days) water sparingly.  Transplant each seedling into a small pot and grow on for 4 weeks. Then either transplant it to a bigger pot or into the garden (but only if all risk of frost has passed).

Seed Quantity 100 Seeds

Type Edible Herb

Genus Ocimum Sanctum

Sow Seeds Sow seeds 0.5cm deep into small trays of seed compost, and cover them with a sprinkling of seed compost/vermiculite.  Keep at a temperature of 15-25℃.  Alternatively, sow outside from late May to early July.  Prick out seedlings into individual pots when large enough.  Do not overwater. Basil hates sitting in wet compost

 Plant Out When all risk of frost has passed. Basil does not like wet soil. 

Flowers All Year Round

Height & Spread 20cm high x 20cm spread
