Harvest in 60-70 days
Grow in seed trays, and plant out in 4-6 weeks. Sow seed at a depth approximately three times the diameter of the seed.
Best planted at soil temperatures between 18°C and 35°C.
Space plants: 20-25cm

Planting/Growing Tips:
>After the seedlings have their first six leaves, prune to above the second set.
>Every time a branch has six to eight leaves, repeat pruning the branches back to their first set of leaves.
>The best time to harvest is right when the plant starts to bud (before the flowers bloom).
>Basil is most pungent when it is fresh.
>If pruned regularly, twelve basil plants will produce 4 to 6 cups of leaves per week.

Maintenance and care:
The best method for storing basil is freezing. Freezing will prevent the plant from losing any of its flavor. To quick-freeze basil, dry whole sprigs of basil and package them in airtight plastic bags.
Another storage method is drying the basil (although some of the flavor will be lost). Pinch off the leaves at the stem and place them in a well-ventilated and shady area. After 3 to 4 days, if the plants are not completely dry, place them in the oven on the lowest heat setting with the door slightly open. Remember to turn the leaves (for equal drying) and check them frequently.
