Description:British breeding for a weather proof basil uniquely showing much more tolerance to colder weather, winds, and light frosts. Dark green glossy leaves with a strong clove taste and aroma. Suitable for vegetable plot, patio containers or in pots on the windowsill.
Sowing Info:Sow seed on the surface of good, free-draining, seed compost. Cover with a fine sprinkling of vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and place at 20-25C (68-77F) until after germination which takes 14-21 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination. Keep compost on the dry side at all times, water lightly as seedlings emerge.
Growing Info:Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Grow on in cooler conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12) apart.
