Lime Basil Herb Seeds
Lime Basil seeds are easy to grow and produce a compact dome shaped plant that looks very stylish growing in terracotta pots. It has small to medium sized mid-green leaves that have a lovely fresh aroma of limes
Basil Lime Herb Seeds take around 2 months from sowing to cropping to full size plants and to ensure further cropping keep picking leaves regularly to encourage fresh new young growth with this productive cut & come' again variety.
Lime Basil seedlings can also be picked early when 3-4 weeks old and used as flavoursome, pungent micro-leaves or left to grow a little larger for baby leaf production. However once the small growing tip is pinched out these baby seedlings will not re-grow but a good idea if you have some unused seed.
