HRH Prince of Wales created Duchy originals in 1990 due to his belief in the advantages of organic farming; the production of natural and healthy foods and sound agriculture which helps to regenerate and protect the countryside and wildlife.
Basil represents the essence of the summer garden and is an easy to grow herb. Basil Genovese is ideal for the kitchen windowsill so why not get the children involved in growing your own. In cuisine it can be used to add flavour to soups and salads and is often used in Mediterranean dishes.

Sow from February to June in pots or trays on the surface of barely moist seed compost and cover with a sprinkling of finely sieved compost. Place in a propagator at 20-25C until germination which takes up to 21 days. Transplant seedlings individually to small pots or cells until they are large enough to plant outdoors. When they are plant 30cm apart in well-prepared soil in full sun once frost risk has passed. Basil can be harvested indoors for much of the year or outdoors from June until frosts.

Height to 45cm
300 seeds per packet.
Instructions included.
