Basil Ocimum basilicum - Organic - Herb seeds

Ocimum basilicum
Healthy and prepared in a jiffy
Tasty and healthy. The organic basil (Ocimum basilicum) contains many minerals like calcium, iron and potassium. It is the perfect seasoning for many dishes in Italian cuisine. The herb seeds are also organically certified. Spread the seeds in a thin layer on the screen and carefully rinse them under the tap. Fill the jar with water up to the bottom of the screen and put it in a dark space at room temperature (20–22°C).
Change the water every day. After 5–8 days, you can eat the sprouts (which will then be 2–5 cm). You can sow the seeds indoors all year round. After sowing, water the seeds adequately. The herb seeds come in a bag containing approximately 15 grams.

These herb seed pads require no prior treatment

Sowing

Sow under glass in March. Sow outdoors end of April to June. These handy seed pads (8 cm diameter) make it easy to grow your own basil. Fill an 8 cm pot (or larger) with potting compost and lay one seed pad on the top. Cover lightly with soil, press carefully down and sprinkle regularly with water. The seeds will germinate within 7-10 days. Each seed pad contains just enough seed for a full pot of basil leaves. Do not allow the plant to dry out.

Care+

Water extra in periods of drought and feed fortnightly with liquid fertiliser. Do not allow the plant to flower as a plant in bloom produces no new leaves.

Herbs on patio or decking.
These herb pots can be stood outdoors from mid-May. Acclimatise them by standing them in a shady spot for an hour longer every day. After 5 days they will be ready to stay outdoors in a sunny, partly shaded spot. For convenience, keep them near the kitchen door or window and then you will always have fresh herbs to hand.

Harvesting

You can harvest your basil about 6-8 weeks after sowing - usually July and September. Do not pick more than you need and steer clear of the centre of the plant. Using scissors or a sharp knife is recommended - be careful when pinching out with finger and thumb as it is easy to pull the plant up. Do not pick too much from one plant. Harvest as long as the plant makes new leaves and you will be able to pick from the same plant(s) for months on end.

Extra+

Originally from India, we are more familiar with basil (Ocimum basilicum) from Mediterranean regions. This plant is an annual. Basil flowers with pink/red flowers. To lengthen your harvest time, prevent flowering. Basil is very good for you and very therapeutic - thought to aid digestion.
