Productinformation

Sweet basil variety Dark Opal (Ocimum basilicum purpurascens)
Basil is a very easy-to-grow herb that you can enjoy all summer till the first frost. This type of dark basil is not only known for its striking foliage but also for its delicate licorice scent. We germinate seeds indoors or in the greenhouse in the 77-cell trays with 2 seeds per cell or more if you use a bigger cell size. As soon as the roots have filled the cells we plant them out. Keep in mind that basil can not handle frost. Seeds germinate better and faster if you can keep them around 20℃. Plants grow great when multisown.
