There is a very high demand for seed at the moment so we are doing our best to keep up with orders and packeting up more seeds. As such we are only accepting a certain amount of orders per day.

Our online shop will be open from 9am each day and we will close it once we have reached our capacity, we have also had to put limits on the amount of any one variety per order (3) and of total order amount (£50), to try to be as fair as possible to all our customers.

Thanks for your patience - we hope you and your loved ones are fit and healthy during this challenging time.

P.S. we apologise in advance if you happen to be in the middle of placing an order when we shut down the shop, and understand how frustrating this would be, but it will inevitably happen to some

Basil – Sweet Genovese (Organic)


The classic basil variety, very productive, aromatic and perfect for all culinary uses, especially making pesto. With large bright green leaves and a smell to die for this is an essential addition to the veg plot. We think you cannot grow too much basil, we use it in almost every meal throughout the summer months. Genovese makes the most superb pesto; aromatic without being overpowering, we eat it throughout the winter months giving us a window of sensation back to the summer at a much-needed time.

A robust, trustworthy variety of The King of Herbs with the perfect balance of aroma and subtlety. If you are growing tomatoes you will undoubtedly want to grow basil in amongst them. And Genovese is the basil to grow. It yields between 7 to 8 cuttings before it is finally exhausted and . A tender annual herb, this is a very robust variety that grows quickly and abundantly.
