Micro basil is gorgeous. This green variety offers the signature basil flavour in miniature form.
One of the most defining features of basil seeds is that when in contact with water, they swell up into gelatinous pearls. The layer of mucilage formed is not only safe to consume, but it is associated with soothing abilities for one’s digestive tract.
MICROGREEN SOWING METHOD: Fill good quality potting mix in a container and spray with water to moisten the mix. Spread seeds evenly on the mix surface and be careful not to overcrowd the tray. Basil seeds turn into gelatinous pearls when in contact with water so be careful not to overcrowd during sowing. Spray water on the mix to prevent seeds from dislodging. Cover the seeds for 2-3 days or when seeds start to germinate. Expose the plant to light after germination occurs and water regularly, keeping the mix moist.
GERMINATION PERIOD: 2-3 days after sowing
HARVEST TIME & METHOD: 8-10 days after germination. Use a pair of scissors to harvest just above the potting medium.
