Availability: Usually ships in 2-3 business days
Sweet Basil, native to Europe, is used fresh or dried as an aromatic culinary seasoning. It was common in America by the late 1700s, and Jefferson requested a supply of this pot-herb from his neighbor George Divers in 1820. Bushy plants grow to two feet and prefer full sun and light, well-drained soil with even moisture. Sweet Basil is an easily grown annual from seed. Direct sow or transplant to the garden after the last frost.

Approximately 90 seeds per pack.
