Basil is the King of Herbs. Versatile and indispensable, aromatic and romantic. The most important flavouring in tomato sauces and pesto. This bushy annual grows to 60 cm (2’).

Now you can enjoy even more home-grown goodness from Botanus. We’re thrilled to offer a select line of top quality, certified organic vegetable seeds. Aimer’s Organic Seeds is one of Canada’s most respected seed suppliers. Their mission is to provide only the best seeds available from certified organic producers whose quality meet the Canada No.1 standards.

 Sow seed outdoors in mid to late May, then every two weeks through August, or start them inside and  transplant after the danger of frost has passed. Basil can be grown indoors on a sunny window or under lights during the winter. Indoor Basil plants are not long lived nor do they produce significantly. Indoor plants tend to be lanky and produce smaller leaves. Outdoors, Basil is a low maintenance plant & prolific-- all you really need to do is provide water when necessary. Lightly feed with a general-purpose fertilizer as too much can adversely affect the production of the essential oils responsible for flavour and aroma. Basil plants are grown for their leaves and flower clusters.
