Greenhouse Performer

This symbol is assigned to only those varieties that we have found, based on our trials, to be the best performers in a climate-controlled greenhouse environment. These varieties have been selected based on proven vigor and disease resistance to sustain healthy growth through a longer season, high yields to justify the investment in the structure, and excellent flavor and appearance.

Growing Information

Basil

DAYS TO GERMINATION: 5-10 days at 65-70°F (18-21°C).

SOWING: Direct seed (recommended): Plant seeds 1/4" deep, 2-3 seeds per inch, in rows 18" apart. Firm the soil over the seeds. Thinning is not necessary, but a final spacing of 4-8" apart produces healthy, full plants. Note: Holy Basil requires some light for germination, so sow more shallowly than other basils.
Transplant: Sow indoors 6 weeks prior to setting out. Plant 1/4" deep and keep at 70°F (21°C) for best germination. Transplant to the field when seedlings have 3-4 sets of leaves, spacing at 4-8" apart in rows 18" apart.

LIGHT PREFERENCE: Sun.

SOIL REQUIREMENTS: Moderately rich, moist soil. Basil is not drought tolerant and can be damaged by heat stress. Regular moisture throughout the growing season helps to ensure a good crop.

PLANT HEIGHT: Varies. See the product description for exact heights.

PLANT SPACING: 4-8".

HARDINESS ZONES: Annual.

HARVEST: Begin light harvesting after plants have become established. It is best done in the early morning when the temperature is cooler and the leaves are less likely to wilt. A full harvest should be completed just before the plants start to flower. Cut the entire plant 4-6" above the ground to promote a second growth. Leaves are easily bruised when picking, so handle carefully. Do not store at a temperature less than 50°F (10°C).
