Thai basil, widely used in Southeast Asian cuisine, featuring the unmistakable spicy, anise/licorice-like flavour.

Pointy, narrow leaves grow on pretty purple stems. The pink-purple flowers that eventually bloom can be used as a garnish for sweet dishes as well. Grows to a height of around 40-50cm (16-20").

Basil grows well in containers indoors at any time of year provided you can supply enough light. For outdoor growing, sow basil seeds throughout late spring for transplanting to the garden after the summer solstice. Or direct sow in early summer, once the soil has warmed up. Basil requires warm soil and full sun. Optimal temperature for germination: 21°C (70°F). Seeds should sprout in 5-10 days.

Sow seeds 1cm (½”) deep in sterilized seed starting mix. Basil is prone to damping off, so once seeds sprout, make sure they are adequately ventilated, and kept under very bright light. Thin to 20-25cm (8-10″) apart. Using bottom heat speeds germination.
