Sweet Basil For Growing Herbs

As the name suggests, our sweet basil seeds will grow mild yet sweet tasting basil and are an excellent culinary herb. Compared to other varieties of basil, sweet basil leaves are noticeably sweeter in taste and very flavoursome. Sweet basil can be used fresh or dried in a wide variety of dishes. You’ll find that it grows up to 50cm in size and can also be grown in containers if this is a better solution for your home or garden.

If you are growing sweet basil in your garden bed, sow in rows a maximum of 30cm apart. Offer your plant a warm yet sheltered position for optimum growing conditions. They can also be planted indoors or in pots, but try to keep them in separate pots to avoid any issues with the roots later on. When they are fully grown, they should have large mid-green shiny leaves that are ready to be added to your favourite dishes.
