About- This blend of Corsican, Genovese, Lemon, and Lime Basil makes a great addition to any culinarian's herb garden. Use Genovese and Corsican Basil in a garden Pesto or traditional Italian dishes to achieve intense aromatic Basil flavor. Lemon and Lime Basil can be used similarly in culinary dishes, and make the perfect addition to a summery drink!

When and Where to Plant- Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost, and transplant out when evening temps are above 45 degrees. Start seeds outdoors in late Spring when the soil temperature has warmed. Choose a warm, full sun location with rich, well-draining soil.

Care and Harvest- Basil does not need much, if any, fertilization. Be sure to keep the soil damp, but not soggy. You can start to harvest from your Basil plant when it is 6-8" tall. Harvest frequently to encourage more growth.
