Shipping Information & Notes
CULTURAL TIP: As with many of our easy-to-grow herbs, basils can be seeded directly into your garden in early through mid-summer. They grow quickly and yield well when seeded thickly into moderately rich, moist soil in full sun.
FUSARIUM WILT TESTED - FTO SEEDS - We specialize in fusarium screened basil seed lots. 1,000 seeds from each seed lot are tested for the presence of pathogenic fusarium wilt fungus. For more information about fusarium wilt and basil, please see link below for Basil Pests and Diseases. We ship only basil seed lots where no fusarium was found in the lab test.
