Basil Thai Seeds is as easy to grow as any other basil, this variety has a distinctly liquorice flavour and used heavily in Thai and oriental dishes.

A native of South East Asia, the purple leaves look very attractive in pots, both outdoors and on the windowsill.

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 finely prepared 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:

For maximum flavour, leaves should be added to cooked dishes at the last minute.

Remove flowers to prolong picking.
