Seed Details:
Produces large, sweet and flavourful leaves for using fresh or frozen (in ice cubes)or dried. This is much milder than other varieties making it a favourite for fresh use. Hint: Use air temperature water rather than tap water for better production. Water seedlings far from stems(bottom watering highly recommended)especially when young.
Instructions:
Start seeds indoors. Sow 1 cm deep. Water seedlings far from stems(bottom watering highly recommended)especially when young.
Habitat:
It is advised to start your basil in a hotbed in April and relocate it to a warm border in May planting about 10 inches to 1 foot apart. Basil dies down every year in Canada so it is considered an annual that must be sown every year.
History:
Like many herb favourite Basil can be traced back to the Roman era. In Persia and Malaysia, the women of Egypt scattered the flowers along with the resting places of those who had passed on in their families. On the opposite end of the scale, the Greeks maintained that the Basil plant represented and misfortune. They believed that Basil would not grow unless abuse was poured forth at the time of sowing. In Crete, it symbolized love washed with tears and in Italy, it was often presented as a token of love.
