Introducing our premium Lemon Basil Seeds, specially selected for their robust growth, delightful aroma, and zesty flavor. These seeds will allow you to grow lush, fragrant lemon basil plants in your garden, adding an unmatched freshness to your culinary creations. But it's not just about the taste – lemon basil is also a beautiful addition to your garden, with its lovely green foliage and delicate white flowers. So, let's dive into the world of lemon basil and learn how to germinate, grow, harvest, and use these great seeds.

Germination: Our Lemon Basil Seeds have a high germination rate, ensuring that you'll have plenty of healthy seedlings to transplant into your garden. To begin, sow the seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date. Please place them in a moist seed-starting mix, covering them with a thin layer of soil. Keep the soil temperature between 70-75°F (21-24°C), and maintain consistent moisture. You should see the seeds sprouting in 5-10 days.

Growing: After the seedlings have developed a few sets of true leaves and all danger of frost has passed, it's time to transplant them into your garden or containers. Choose a location with well-draining soil and total sun exposure for the best results. Space the seedlings 12-18 inches (30-45 cm) apart, allowing ample room for growth. Water regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Lemon basil thrives in a slightly acidic to neutral soil pH of 6.0-7.0. Adding compost or organic matter can help improve soil fertility and drainage.

Harvesting: Your lemon basil plants will be ready for harvesting once they reach about 12 inches (30 cm) in height. To promote bushier growth, pinch off the growing tips and remove any flower buds as they appear. You can harvest the leaves throughout the growing season by snipping them with clean scissors. For the best flavor, harvest in the morning when the essential oils are at their peak. Lemon basil is best enjoyed fresh, but you can freeze or dry the leaves later.

Using: Lemon basil's unique, citrusy flavor makes it a versatile herb that can be used in various dishes. Use it to enhance the taste of salads, seafood, poultry, pasta, and rice dishes. Its bright, zesty flavor pairs exceptionally well with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, and olive oil for a delightful Caprese salad. Lemon basil also shines in homemade pesto, marinades, and salad dressings. For a refreshing summer drink, muddle lemon basil leaves with fresh fruit for a delicious infused water or cocktail.
