When late spring weather has thoroughly warmed up, sow seeds 1 inch apart in well worked, fertile soil in full sun. Cover 1/4 inch deep, firm soil and keep seed bed moist. Germination takes 1 to 2 weeks. After seedlings are well established, thin or transplant 8 inches apart to allow plants room to mature.


Sow 1 inch apart in seed starting mix, 4 to 6 weeks before last expected frost. Keep warm and moist, and provide a good light source. When seedlings are large enough to handle and nights reach 50°F (10°C), acclimate gradually to outdoor conditions before planting in the garden.


Remember — for success with this easy to grow herb, it is critical to sow or transplant basil into garden beds only when late spring day and nighttime temperatures stay above 50°F (10°C). Harvest sprays of leaves by snipping stems just above two new sprouting lateral branches to encourage lush foliage. Keep flower buds pinched off to extend harvesting and feed regularly to promote new growth.
