The lush purplish-bronze foliage makes this a stunning ornamental plant as well as for herbal uses. This A.A.S. winner has fine flavour and aroma and is excellent for seasoning or use in vinegars. It is not uncommon for a small proportion of the leaves will turn green. One interesting note is basil seeds harvested from mature plants are used as a thickening agent in sweet drinks. Annual.

600 seeds/gram Do not rush planting as Basil loves warm soil and warm temperatures - they will languish if temperatures are below 15 C (60 F). Sow seed directly outdoors in a sunny site with average soil in late May and June. Plant seed 4 mm (3/16") deep and 6 mm (1/4") apart. Thin to 20-25 cm (8-10") apart in the garden. Seed can also be started indoors in a soil-less mix 4-6 weeks before last frost date. Keep temperature at 21 C (70 F) for the 7-10 day germination period, then grow on at the same temperature before hardening off and transplanting outside after the danger of all frost has passed.
