No Italian inspired pizza or pasta is complete without the aromatic flavour of basil, a tender leafy herb with fat, glossy green leaves. Grow in a container in a sunny spot on the patio or indoors on a bright windowsill and keep well-watered for a plentiful supply. Chop finely over tomatoes or blend with olive oil for the best pesto ever.

Indoor Sowing: Sow end March - June. Sow seeds in a seed tray and cover seeds with 3-5mm moist compost and keep on a warm, sunny windowsill or in a greenhouse. Transfer seedlings into small pots. Protect from slugs and cold and keep well-watered.
Growing instructions: Grow the plants on in a warm place and plant outside only from June or plant in a greenhouse at a spacing of 25cm. Pick plants over regularly and remove any developing flowerheads immediately to prevent bolting (running to seed) and to encourage lots of fresh young leaves. By cutting off the top of the main shoot, the plant will produce side shoots for a later harvest.
