This cornucopia makes a great addition to your herb garden! Planting instructions: For rapid germination, it is necessary to warm the basil seeds to 100 ? for 3 hours. After warming up the seeds must be saturated with moisture. Take cotton pads or a piece of gauze, put the warmed seeds there, tie with a thread. Pour warm water about 100 ?, place the grains there. Place in a warm place with a temperature (75-95 ?) for at least 20 hours up to 2 days. At the same time, water is changed every 12 hours. After 30-60 minutes, the seeds will be covered with mucus, this is the process of dissolving the essential oils. Gently rinse a bag of gauze or a cotton pad in water to rinse off the mucus. Dry slightly. Basil should be grown in a place that gets sunshine at least six to eight hours per day. The soil should be well-drained with a pH of 6-7.5. Basically, the best time to plant basil seeds is when all danger of frost has passed in the spring. Growing basil seeds is not that difficult. Just sow basil plant seeds evenly by covering them with about ΒΌ-inch of soil. Keep the soil moist and make sure you remove any weeds. The growing basil seeds should germinate within a week. The seedling can be recognized by D-shaped seed leaves that will have the flat sides facing toward each other. Once you see a few more pairs of leaves, you should thin the basil plants to be about6 to 12 inches apart. You will want to make sure you water your basil every seven to 10 days to make sure your plants get enough water.
