Sweet Basil
Ocimum basilicum

DESCRIPTION: Annual herb growing to 45cm. Sweet basil has large luscious foliage and grows to a neat, bushy plant. Plant in containers or the kitchen garden to enjoy the fresh leaves in salads and pasta dishes.
PLANTING: Spring-Summer and Autumn-Winter in warmer locations. Sow seeds directly into their final position & thin at approx 5cm in height. A full sun position is ideal.
USE IN: Basil pairs beautifully with tomato based dishes, sauces and salads. It makes the perfect pizza toppper too, simply tear a few leaves and sprinkle over pizza fresh from the oven. The heat from the pizza relaeses the delightful sweet aroma from the leaves.
CARE: Water seedlings regularly until established and continue to provide water especially during dry spells. Mulch plants to retain moisture in the soil. Tip prune plants while young for a bushy plant and bumper harvest. Boost new growth by applying liquid fertiliser monthly. Leaves may be frozen for later use.
