(Ocimum basilicum) Plants produce beautiful green leaves with a heavenly lemon scent. When I make soap, I love adding dried herbs from the garden and my ultimate favorite has to be lemon basil. Nothing is more fresh and summery than the scent of lemon basil and I love lathering up my soap in January and experiencing my favorite scents of summer. Lemon basil plants produce vibrant green leaves which are excellent in pesto or simply served with sliced tomato and fresh mozzarella. A great party snack with a light summery, flavor. 60 days to maturity. Approx. 250 seeds/pkt.
CULTURE: After danger of frost has passed, sow seeds 1" apart, 1/4" deep in rows 18-24" apart. Under ideal conditions, germination will occur in 5-10 days. After germination, thin to one plant every 4-8"
