They need warmth to thrive so we bring these more in the summer. Keeping the light off them until they a stretching for it (as is the technique with all our greens) will help give them more height otherwise they can settle barely off the ground. They shoud reach a few inchs if they are happy. Best to avoid water until they are underway.
We also do other types of basil types such as – Thai, Lemon, Orange and Purple, Sweet, Genovese and Greek. Occasionally these are grouped together more as a tactic that at least one will come through. We like bring out the ones that don’t come out in the shops that much.
Thai Basil is a special cultivar of basil, literally translated as cinnamon basil in Vietnam where they commonly use it in their cooking for its anise flavour and heat tolerant properties.
