Planting Instructions for Heirloom Genovese Basil Seeds
For a successful harvest, Genovese Basil needs:
- Full sunlight exposure.
- Plant the seeds 1/4 inch deep and space them 18 to 24 inches apart.
- Begin planting once frost is no longer a concern, as basil is susceptible to any level of frost.
- Provide basil with a consistent water supply and warm soil. Mulch usage depends on your area's temperature - wait for soil to reach the mid-60s Fahrenheit in cooler regions before adding mulch, but in summer, apply mulch earlier.
- Expect full growth in about 85 days.
Harvesting Guide for Genovese Basil
Harvest your basil for the brightest flavors:
- Harvest leaves as soon as the flower buds start to form.
