What are the pros? Smell, Taste

What are the cons? Hates Transplanting

Review:

Grew these in Toronto Ontario on a balcony in baskets. Hot full sun, water once a day, twice on heatwaves. All items I grow are in containers and all my reviews are bias towards that. Basil germinated well but every time I tried to start indoors early they would wither and die 50% of plants, none of the other bails did this that i grew so I know it was not damping-off. Same growing medium and tray. Of the small little plats that did make it, they disliked being transplanted and rarely grow bigger then 6" before dying or trying to set flower. Would highly recommend sowing direct and if in a container a large one.

What are the pros? Hard to find these seeds!

What are the cons? None

Review:

These seeds need warmth to germinate. Very Lightly cover the seeds with soil and make sure to keep them moist with a fine mist spray. They take time but sure worth the wait! Great seeds, good germination rate.

What are the pros? caterpillars love it, easy!

What are the cons? needs warm soil to germinate

Review:

This is super easy to grow if you're patient. Seeds take time and warmth to germinate. However, the last 2 winters I have left plants in containers outside all winter and seeds germinated on their own the next year. I am going to try growing some in a protected bed direct sow this year to see if they'll self seed in the beds too or only in containers.

What are the pros? high germination rate

What are the cons? Needs warmth and protection

Review:

Different dishes in Thailand require different types of basil, and spicy stir-fry dishes use holy basil (kaprao) which is very distinctive. We live in a cooler Northern California climate. I planted these seeds in a large patio pot. The first two times I planted the seeds they germinated and then the tiny plants disappeared when they were a few millimeters high. Perhaps it was too cold or some bug was getting them. The third time, I put one of those plant cloth blankets (that lets light in) over the pot which warmed things up and protected them. I took it off when the plants were a few inches high. Had a great harvest for several months. Seems like every seed germinated. I highly recommend and will be growing them again this year.
