BASIL – Thai

(400 seeds)

$4.25

(3 customer reviews)

The real Thai basil for lovers of Eastern cuisine

Thai cuisine is famed for its herbs and spices, and Thai basil is a major contributor to Thai food favourites. The small, narrow leaves and spicy flavour make Thai basil distinctive – and even when cooked at high heat, it retains its fresh flavour. This herb is a must-have for foodies, and it’s easy to grow too. It has a spicy flavour that sweet basil lacks.

How to Sow

Basil is amongst the easiest of plants to grow from seed. Almost every seed will germinate if treated well, so sow thinly. Just cover to a maximum of 5mm and keep constantly moist until they germinate. Then reduce watering a little. Protect from frost.

How to Harvest

The more you harvest your basil, the more it produces! Pinch out tips or trim them with scissors. Two young leaves and a tip bud will have the best aroma and flavour. Your plant will replace each tip with a pair of tips, so your harvest keeps growing! Pinch out flowers to prolong your harvest.
