When to Sow British Basil Seeds

All year round. Annual herb, outdoor plot or windowsill. 

Where to Sow

Sow seeds 0.5cm (1/4in) deep, in small trays of compost and lightly cover the seeds with a sprinkling of compost, and place at a temperature of 15-20 degrees C. Alternatively sow direct outside in April and May into shallow seed drills. 

What to do next

Prick out seedlings individually to 7cm (3in) pots, once large enough to handle. Grow on in cooler conditions, then gradually harden off plants in a cold frame before planting out after risk of frost has passed. Transplant to final positions 30cm (12in) apart or into larger containers, or grow a few in pots on a light windowsill all year round. Direct sown seedlings can be thinned to 15-30cm (16-12in) apart and harvested as required. 


Handy Tip

Add to cooking just before serving to retain the full flavour.
