It's a Tuesday evening, and after work, you're trying to make something tasty, nutritious but easy. Look no further, why not add some home-grown basil to your tomato sauce or whip up a home-made pesto in minutes.

You can be that person! We believe in you!

We've carefully chosen a variety called Basil Sweet Genovese which:

  • Works well on a sunny windowsill
  • Is easy to grown

The taste is also something pretty special. It's a delicate herb with a bold aroma.

Indoors this can be planted anytime.

The sooner you plant the seeds, the sooner they'll grow. Don't regret not planting them today.

🌱 How to grow Basil from seed

  • Choose some pots/jars/small tubs to put them in, if possible, with some drainage holes (you can put a saucer underneath)
  • Fill the pot with good soil
  • Sprinkle just a few seeds in and cover with 0.5 cm of soil
    (depending on your pot size you might have enough for a few)
  • Water only slightly, in general you want to keep the compost slightly dry and water very lightly as seedlings emerge
  • Choose a nice sunny spot to place your herbs
  • Turn the pots every few days, so it doesn’t lean into the sun
  • Let us know when you plant it, and as it grows, so we can share tips with you
  • If your basil starts to look a bit crowded use scissors to thin them out.
