  • Ocimum basilicum

    Characteristics: Basil is one the easiest and most popular traditional culinary herbs! This tasty favorite is an annual, and will grow well in just about every zone. Be sure to plant outside only when night temperatures reach 50 to 55 degrees or above.
    Light: Basil needs a lot of light, but will benefit from a little shade during the hottest part of the day.
    Water: Water basil when it is dry to the touch, without over-watering.
    Soil: Basil likes rich, well-drained soil and will grow best in soil enhanced with well-composted manure.
    Use: Try adding a few leaves of Lemon Sweet Dani to your next fish recipe for a refreshing zing.

    Basil is also a fantastic natural pest repellent and companion plant for your home and garden!

    Basil is a wonderful plant to plant near your kitchen windows or doorways, not just for its use in your favorite dishes, but because this culinary herb has terrific natural pest repellent properties! Said to effectively keep house flies and mosquitoes away, planting Basil near entryways to your home, rubbing it on your skin and clothing, and planting it around your yard and patio will help reduce the amount of unwanted summer pests. Planting it in your garden will also keep destructive pests like Thrips, white flies, and aphids away from neighboring plants. Basil blooms are also very attractive to butterflies and other useful pollinators.

    Basil is said to increase the health and flavor of many vegetables like asparagus, bell peppers, cabbage and especially tomato plants when companion planted together. For best results, do not plant Sage or Rue near your Basil, as this is said to inhibit the plant's growth and flavor. Instead, grow Chamomile near your Basil plants to encourage its success.
