The Kingdom of Basil

 

Most known of the Basils is Sweet Basil, and has Long been known as the ‘King of the Herbs’. You may be surprised to see how many verities of basil there is, all with different smells and tastes. Basilea has selected the best range to suit South East Queensland’s weather conditions. Basils in general do must better in warmer months, peek growing from October to March. When basil flowers, the flavour weakens and leaves become smaller, dry and leathery. When flower clusters form, they should be removed, this will promote more growth. At the end of basil season, March, It is good idea to allow to flower and set seeds that you can collect, to use in cooking or to grow next season. All Basils Thrive when they are cut back & used. Doing this will make the plant develop a woody stem & prevent the plant Flowering. Protect from cold winter weather & you will see new growth in Spring on bi-annual and perennial Basils .
