Note that the individual plants can grow much larger. We deliberately sow them close together to quickly harvest a variety of leaves. When the plants get too big, you'd better sow again in another patch.
Besides the latter, there are 3 other varieties in this mixture and you get a nice and colorful selction.
We choose to put 9 plants in a patch, although the adult plants are getting too big for that. But this way, you get a nice combo of the four different varieties.
Moreover, you are more or less forced to harvest the leaves quickly and abundantly. And that's what Basil is all about, right?
If you want the plants to grow a bit bigger, put them in an MM-mini. They do very well there and have all the space they need to expand to the sides.
Water the basil plants regularly and pinch off flower buds as soon as you see them. That way, you'll get more side branches and, therefore, more leaves.
Basil's step-by-step sowing and growing instructions can be found in our app.
The cinnamon and lemon basil are actually very nice to add to your homemade vinegar.
The purplish leaves of the Dark Opal are a bit spicier than the others, which is very tasty in oriental dishes and salads.
