Our smallest Greek basil for small or mixed containers.
Genuine spicy-sweet, Greek basil flavor. Similar to Spicy Bush, but plants are about half the size. Neat, uniform plants perfect for pots and garden beds. 1/2" long leaves. One plant perfectly fills a 3-6" pot with an attractive boxwood-like, mounded or domed appearance. Small, flavorful leaves make convenient garnishes and are easily pinched from the plant or stem and sprinkled over dishes. Ht. 6-8". Similar to Piccolino, which it replaced. Avg. 29,300 seeds/oz. Packet: 200 seeds.
DAYS TO GERMINATION:5-10 days at 65-70°F (18-21°C).

SOWING:Direct seed (recommended): Plant seeds 1/4" deep, 2-3 seeds per inch, in rows 18" apart. Firm the soil over the seeds. Thinning is not necessary, but a final spacing of 4-8" apart produces healthy, full plants. Note: Holy Basil requires some light for germination, so sow more shallowly than other basils. Transplant: Sow indoors 6 weeks prior to setting out. Plant 1/4" deep and keep at 70°F (21°C) for best germination. Transplant to the field when seedlings have 3-4 sets of leaves, spacing at 4-8" apart in rows 18" apart.

LIGHT PREFERENCE:Sun.

SOIL REQUIREMENTS:Moderately rich, moist soil. Basil is not drought tolerant and can be damaged by heat stress. Regular moisture throughout the growing season helps to ensure a good crop.

PLANT HEIGHT:Varies. See the product description for exact heights.

PLANT SPACING:4-8".

HARDINESS ZONES:Annual.

HARVEST:Begin light harvesting after plants have become established. It is best done in the early morning when the temperature is cooler and the leaves are less likely to wilt. A full harvest should be completed just before the plants start to flower. Cut the entire plant 4-6" above the ground to promote a second growth. Leaves are easily bruised when picking, so handle carefully. Do not store at a temperature less than 50°F (10°C).

PELLETED SEED:If using pelleted seed, we recommend consistent soil moisture during the germination period. Pelleted seed must be kept cool and dry prior to planting, and should be used within one year of purchase.

SCIENTIFIC NAME:Ocimum spp.
