  • Sow in a location with full sun (or Partial Shade) outdoors after all danger of frost and when it is warm.  Basil can be planted outside from early-spring through mid-summer.
  • For earlier plants start seeds indoors in flats 4 to 6 weeks before last frost and set plants outside when it is warm, after all danger of frost.  Cover seed with 1/16 to 1/8 inch fine soil. Keep soil moderately moist during germination.
  • Thin or transplant when at least 2 inches tall to approximately 8-10 inches apart.  Indoors, transplant seedlings to individual pots and set plants outside when it is warm and after all danger of frost.
  • Harvest leaves continually to encourage new growth.   Use pruned leaves or harvested plants fresh or dry them in a warm, airy place.
  • If you practice companion planting, plant basil near tomatoes and peppers to enhance their growth.
