Organic Culinary Basil Seeds 6-Cell Starter Kit
Basil plants are popularly grown indoors just as readily as they are planted outdoors in containers, planters, and the garden bed. Most varieties of basil are native to the reliably wet, humid tropics of southeast Asia and Africa and still require the same consistently moist conditions for a flavorful and booming harvest. Unlike some of the woodier perennial herbs, basil is nearly effortless to grow from seed and can just as easily be propagated from a cutting in only a matter of weeks.
Inside This Kit
- Organic Culinary Basil Seeds: Basil may be the champion of the herb world--its wide use and powerful flavor make it one of the most popular herbs on the planet. Basil is a delight to the senses and well worth growing in your herb garden.
- 6-Cell Compressed Coir Tray: These 6-cell coir trays offer the perfect spacing, depth, and soil drainage for your quickly maturing Italian Large Leaf basil plants. Trays come slightly perforated so they may be easily separated for replanting, but can stay intact for several weeks while germinating and sprouting. Basil plants thrive from the reliable drainage that compressed coir pots offer without the fear of dissolving or molding. When transplanting basil plants into the garden or a container, do not transplant the coir pot along with the basil. Instead, use scissors to simply cut the coir tray to safely remove the basil plant. Compressed coir cells are ideal for providing young seedling the proper drainage and aeration to prevent mold and mildew in the first several months of germination.
- 6 Coir Soil Pucks: The Culinary Basil Starter Kit includes 6 individually compressed coir pucks, plenty of soil for each of your starting trays. For best and quickest results, hydrate the pucks together in a separate bowl or container using medium warm water. Pucks will immediately begin to dissolve and turn into soil once hydrated, manually helping break up pucks to speed up the process. Coir pucks may individually be placed in each of the starting trays and hydrated in place, easily allowing excess water to drain out. Allow soil to dry before planting with basil seeds.
