  • Basil Sweet punnet 6 cell

    $3.49
    Ocimum Basilicum or commonly know as Sweet basil is a popular herb with bright green strongly aromatic foliage with a distinctive flavour, used commonly for culinary purposes, in salads, soups, pasta dishes, tomato, egg and cheese dishes. Basil can also be used for companion planting amongst Tomatoes as the grow. Basil Prefers a position which is sheltered from frost, which is why i never normally offer it for sale until at least late October until March ( unless sold out), unlike other stores, who just sell it for the sake of taking your money and couldnt care less if it grows for you... the more you kill the more you will buy is their attitude... we dont share this attitude, we want gardeners to have success and confidence in everything the buy and grow from us, including our knowledge on our locality here in the Dandeong Ranges and when the best time to plant it out is  ......  i believe,  that people who keep killing products or not having success, generally will give up trying and thats not good for my business.... these warehouses and hardware stores posing as nurseries dont care, they will just move on to the next seasons profit maker !!...                now back to basil Basil will grow up to 45cms tall by 40cms wide in moist to well drained soils.... keep the soil moist  ( not sogging wet) during the drier warmer months, allow plenty of airflow around them, tip prune when young to encourage bushy growth, most importantly have them in full sun to partial shade ( not heavy shade or full shade) and protect them frosts  and from slugs and snails..... Little tip about Slugs and Snails   if you love your delicates in the garden, then it is a good time to stock up on some full strength beer !!... use a saucer of full strength beer instead of bait or poisons around your edibles, the yeast in the beer will attract the snails and slugs ( and cockroaches, slaters and earwigs ive found), they cannot process the alcohol, so they drink it, get merry, have a party and never wake up, and at least if other animals eat them afterwards, they wont be poisoned either..... dont be a tightarse and use light beer, because its cheaper, if you are one of those types and you are going to waste time, might as well put some music on and make the bugs some snacks as well so they can really enjoy trashing your garden.
