Basil Greek Yevani

Basil Greek Yevani Organic Seeds

Ocimum basilicum minimum

Annual. Now anyone can grow basil, even if you garden only in containers! This small-leaved, 12" diameter, 6" tall mounded basil doesn’t give up anything to the other basils in flavor; it has a very strong basil taste and fragrance that makes “a little go a long way”. Very slow bolting. Excellent border plant for the flower garden!

When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost. If weather is still cool and wet, wait until it warms up.

When to start inside: 6 to 8 weeks before sowing outside.

Special sowing instructions: Easy to grow from seed. Wait to sow until nighttime temperatures are above 50° F.

Harvesting: Basil should be harvested before the plant flowers. The young, top leaves taste the best, and should be used fresh; the older leaves may be used for vinegar and pesto. Cut main stem, leaving at least 3 pairs of leaves near ground; plant will regrow to produce additional leaves. Pick as late in the day as possible. If there is any chance of temperatures dropping to 32° F, harvest crop immediately; basil is very frost sensitive.
