Ocimum basilicum. This culinary wonder can grow up to 4" leaves on a compact and uniform plant. Mammoth is packed full of sweet flavour and is ideal in all types of cooking including the ever popular pesto. Great for growing in pots.
Available in 4" pots
Light requirement: full sun
Susceptible to frost and cold. Water at mid-day not in the evening; avoid overwatering seedlings to prevent mildew. Harvest leaves every week, pinching terminal buds first to stimulate branching and encourage bushiness. Harvest should be in early autumn before the leaves turn limp and yellow. Cut stalks for drying before the plant comes into flower. Do not hang in bunches, as the leaves will dry too slowly and could mold.
