Basil (Ocimum basilicum)
Genovese basil is best know for starring in classic pesto recipes and along-side garden-grown tomatoes in summer salad. Basil is a great companion plant, attracting pollinators to the garden. Garden tip: Plant basil as close to the kitchen as possible or in containers because you'll be making the trip to fetch basil all summer!
(Approximately 100 seeds per packet)
Planting Instructions: sow in spring after frost when soil is at least 60 F. One seed 1/4" deep every 12" in full sun to part shade. Great for planting in containers!
