Using a good quality, moist seed compost, sow your seeds in a propagator and cover with 6mm (¼") compost. Place on a windowsill or in a greenhouse at approximately 10-15ºC (50-60ºF) to germinate (usually 14-21 days). Grow on, transferring young plants outside when danger of frost has passed. Alternatively, sow seeds in a 10cm (4") pot and place on a windowsill to germinate. Grow on and use as either microgreens (seedlings 4cm [1½"] high) or young Basil.

Easy to grow and perfect for containers or window boxes!
