Thai basil - Ocimum basilicum.
A very fragrant selection and distinct improvement over other Thai Basils. Extra large leaf size and large plants mean more of that intense liquorice fragrance.
The bright green leaves make an attractive foil for the purple-red stems which bear violet-pink flowers. Superb as a container plant on the patio where you can smell its aroma.
Excellent for bedding edging and the vegetable or flower garden. Height 25-30 cm.
Sowing Instructions: Sow 1.5 mm deep in good seed sowing compost from Late February to late April. Germination takes 7-14 days at +18+20°C.
Growing Instructions: When large enough to handle transplant the seedlings to boxes or 7.5 cm pots and when well grown gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions.
Plant out in May after all risk of frost has passed 30 cm apart in full sun and well drained soil.
For container plants and hanging baskets grow on in 7.5 cm pots until well rooted and then plant up allowing each plant 10-15 cm of space.
Aftercare Instructions: Save one or two plants to grow indoors on a sunny windowsill. Pick the leaves anytime for fresh use; for drying pick as the flowers start to open.

Eng.: Thai basil (for Balcony). Suom.: THAI-BASILIKA.
