Ready for containers, True Italian Basil: Profumo di Genova

Treat yourself to a gorgeous little pot of this specialty Italian basil! I purchase seeds directly from the importer and grow these indoors, all organic potting soil. “Our latest Italian import has been carefully bred for clean, bright basil flavor, an elegant compact shape and good disease resistance. Fancy European greengrocers offer pots of dense, leafy Profumo di Genova at the front of their market stalls so cooking gardeners can take it home and and enjoy a regular supply of its spicy fragrant leaves. Grow this luscious basil in your own garden this season for abundant harvests of delicious leaves.”

Sun requirement: Full sun
Care instructions: transplant basil into garden beds only when late spring day and nighttime temperatures stay above 55°F (13°C). Harvest sprays of leaves by snipping stems just above two new sprouting lateral branches to encourage lush foliage. Keep flower buds pinched off to extend harvesting. Feed regularly with high nitrogen fertilizer to promote new growth.
