Planting Instruction
  • How To Sow: Choose a sheltered, well drained site in full sun. Sow direct where to grow, in a warm well prepared seedbed. Form a shallow trench/groove approximately 5mm deep and lay the tape in it. These seeds are already spaced 3cm apart and attached to the tape. Cover with soil to a depth of 1cm and water well.
  • Seedling Care: Keep seedbed or trays evenly moist during the germination period of 7-10 days. Apply McGregor's FruitMax 2 weeks after germination for healthier plans and a maximum crop. Protect your vege garden from snails and slugs with McGregor's Snail and Slug bait and from White Butterfly with McGregor's Derris Dust.
  • Hints and Tips: If you are serving Basil raw the leaves release more aroma if torn rather than chopped. Thin seedlings to 30cm when that are large enough to handle.
