When to sow: March – July
Spacing: 15 x 30cm
Basil tips: Sow into a seed tray and prick out plants when they are still small to avoid root damage. Alternatively sow in modules.
Plant out either under cover, or in a sunny and sheltered spot at final spacing. Harvest the tips of shoots back to a node to keep the plants producing tender new leaves. If plants are becoming leggy, they can be cut back to 1/3 of their size. They should produce new growth.
