Basil - Dark Opal Seed Packet


Annual Herb.  This annual herb with its fine flavour and aroma is excellent for seasoning or for use in vinegars.  Grows to 60cm tall.

Sow seeds outdoors in late May to early June or start them inside and transplant after danger of frost is past.  Space 6mm apart and sow 3mm deep in a sunny site with average soil.

Lush purplish-bronze foliage is also stunning as an ornamental plant.  However, a small proportion of the leaves will turn green.
