Basil Genovese Giant – Large Pot


2 in stock


Ocimum basilicum

A large-leafed variety of the standard Genovese basil, that grows to about 50cm tall.

Could be advantageous where growing space is at a premium and a large quantity of fresh Basil foliage may be required.

Wonderful for using fresh in salads, sandwiches, on pizza, or for pesto.

You can either plant the basil out, or into a bigger container (it will need more root space than the current pot). Just be sure to water it, and give it a regular feed. We’ve been feeding the basil every few weeks with this organic fertiliser – it’s easy to use, just sprinkle some on the soil.

Grown with organic seed in a growing media that’s free from chemical fertilisers.

Note that basil is an annual plant, which means it will die off over winter.

You are welcome to return the plastic pot to us when you’ve finished with it.
