A delicious herb for Mediterranean cooking

A classic for every garden, this variety of basil has been specifically chosen to be grown outdoors in the United Kingdom; this is due to their resistance to cooler weather conditions. Therefore, you can feel assured that these plants will make a reliable, winter hardy feature to your beds and borders. Each plant will produce glossy, medium-green leaves that will not discolour or lose their intense, widely appreciated flavour. When planting, each plant merely needs to be distributed between 15 and 20 centimetres apart, and they will collectively prove an ideal choice for a smaller-sized garden in need of some herbs or greenery.

About your plant - Lovingly grown by our trusted Nursery in England, each herb will be grown in the most suitable conditions possible to allow them to grow beautifully. Once dispatched, they will be delivered directly to your door. Packaging - Being environmentally friendly is important to us which is why our packaging comes with focus on sustainability. Aside from being recyclable, they will keep your plant secure on their journey to your home.
When Your Plants Arrive… Unpack your plants: Preferably straight after they arrive, you should carefully unpack your plants. They may appear slightly tired after their journey, however they will soon perk up again. Identify each plant: Each type of plant (but not each individual plant) will be clearly labelled. Lay them out into their respective plant types (such as wild rocket, cauliflower, or peas). Provide a drink: The roots of your plants may be dry, so provide all of them with a nourishing drink of water. Ensuring that the roots are stood upright, submerge the roots of each plant for a few minutes in a container of clean water. Planting Your Vegetables or Herbs… Their position: For the best results, plant your vegetables in a site that receives full sun. Soil types: You should always avoid waterlogged soils. This is because they can lead to root rot and compacted surroundings, which will hinder your vegetables’ growth. Watering requirements: Water when planting, and also during periods of drought. Hardiness: Our trusted nursery staff will attentively care for your vegetables, and only deliver them when it is warm enough for them to be planted in your garden.
