Basil Red Leaved Seeds from Mr Fothergill's Seeds and Plants.

The purple leaves give a real 'lift' to salads, stir fries and pasta.

Herbs are so easy – you don’t even need a garden! Just a few in pots on the patio or windowsill will add that little extra to a dish. Great for salads & garnish.

Sow & Grow:

Sow and grow indoors for all year round crops. Sow 0.5cm (¼") deep, in small pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days.

Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. For earlier outdoor crops, sow indoors March-May. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into warm, well-drained soil, 20cm (8") apart, during May-July.

Alternatively, plants can be grown on a light windowsill. Or sow outdoors March-May for ease, where they are to crop, 0.5cm (¼") deep, directly into into finely-prepared, warm, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 20cm (8") apart.

For a continuous supply, make sowings at two to three week intervals.

Harvest: Leaves are best picked immediately before use (outdoor crops from June).

Hints & Tips:

Ideal for adding contrasting colour to salads. Can be grown in trays and cut at seedling size for an unusual garnish.
