Basil 'Dark Opal' (Ocimum basilicum) Seeds


Like normal basil, Dark Opal basil is best sown indoors. Keep your seedlings on a warm windowsill as they develop their roots and first leaves, then bring them outside in mid/late spring. Like most herbs, basil likes well-draining soil and partial shade/full sun, and is best watered sparingly (in the morning to give the roots time to dry). Use in a variety of cuisines and as a natural insecticide.

    Deep flavor
    Not only does it add a dark presence to the garden, it has an intense flavor of basil.

    Hat ne Weile bis zur Keimung gedauert, aber jetzt kann man fast zusehen, wie die pflänzchen sich entwickeln. Werden auch schon dunkel lila
