Sweet Basil Seedlings

Sweet Basil- Ocimum basilicum

Allow me to introduce you to my basil seedlings. These babies are annuals, and will hopefully grow one to two feet tall and eight to twelve inches wide.

According to the packet instructions, I need to wait six weeks until I can transplant them to the big wide world that is my garden.

When they are all grown up they will prefer full sun and well-drained, moist soil.




Right now they are happy in my kitchen window sill under a heat lamp. Obviously they need a little thinning but otherwise they seem to be doing well. They have just sprouted their first true leaves and I am preparing to treat them with foliar seaweed spray in the next few days.

Are you excited about any of your up-and-coming seedlings? Feel free to comment.
