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.
  • You can gather the entire plant every 3 weeks for continuous fresh produce.
