Product Description

Thai herb basil seed by Mr. Fothergill’s. Very decorative, spicy taste. The traditional ingredient for oriental and Thai dishes.

Useful Information: Suitable for contained gardens; Herb garden

Sow and Grow: Sow and grow indoors for all year round crops. Sow 0.5 cm (1/4-inch) deep, in small pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20 degree C (60-68 degree F) is ideal. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. For earlier outdoor crops, sow indoors March-May. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into warm, well-drained soil, 20 cm (8-inch) apart, during May-July. Alternatively, plants can be grown on a light windowsill. Or sow outdoors March-May for ease, where they are to crop, 0.5 cm (1/4-inch) deep, directly into finely prepared soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 20 cm (8-inch) apart. For a continuous supply, make sowings at two to three week intervals. Harvest: Leaves are best picked immediately before use (outdoor crops from June).

Hints and Tips: For maximum flavour, leaves should be added to cooked dishes at the last minute. Remove flowers to prolong picking.

    Grew loads of Thai basil from these seeds. Follow the instructions and you’ll be fine and save packet compared to buying at the super market.
