Product Description

Genovese, aka Sweet, Basil is the perfect pesto-maker.  Give this one enough space and you’ll get big bushy plants that will keep you in pesto all year long.  These are 7th generation Brooklyn-grown seeds.

To Sow

  • Start Indoors: March 15, Transplant: April 15; Direct Seed: April 15
  • Planting Depth: ⅛ in. to ¼ in.
  • Germination Rate: 96%

To Grow

Basil likes the warm sun, so start these guys indoors and plant outside after our final frost date, April 15.  Even then you’ll want to keep your plants covered in a cold frame or just wait a bit to transplant to ensure nice warm nights.  Harvest center-top branches to avoid bolting and to help your plant bush out, meaning more shoots and a bigger harvest.

  • For Raised Beds: Space plants 8-12 in. apart, leaving 12 in. between rows.
  • For Containers: Can be grown in a container as small as a 1-gallon container or a shallow window box, but will thrive in a deep container measuring 2 gallons or more.

Seeds Per Pack: 100
