Planting Instructions: To plant directly into the garden, When late spring weather has reached the 55°F (13°C), sow seeds 1 inch apart in well worked fertile soil in full sun. Cover 1/2 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.

To start indoors, Sow seeds 1 inch apart in a container of seed starting mix, 4 to 6 weeks before last expected frost. Keep warm and evenly moist, and provide a good light source. When seedlings are large enough to handle and weather is above 55°F (13°C), acclimate gradually to the outdoors, then plant in the garden or into large pots.

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 night temperatures stay above 55°F (13°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.
