Details

A wonderful new basil resulting from British breeding of Thai and Genovese crosses, Basil Christmas produces large glossy leaves. As the name hints, this basil does relate to that festive time of year – it has a unique fruity, mulled-wine aroma – which we associate with Christmas.

A profusion of stunning purple flowers makes this a decorative plant perfect for the windowsill, in a flower border or in containers outside in the summer.

Type: Herb

Sowing:
Sow February to June.
Sow seed on the surface of good, free-draining, seed compost. Cover with a fine sprinkling of vermiculite. Place in a propagator or sealed 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:
Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3”) pots. Grow on in cooler conditions for 1-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 3cm (12”) apart.

Quantity: 100 seeds
