Germinating Thai Basil Seeds:

  1. Soak seeds in water for 12-24 hours to speed up germination.
  2. Fill seedling trays or small pots with a well-draining, fertile seed starting mix.
  3. Sow seeds about 1/4 inch deep and cover them lightly with soil.
  4. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. Use a spray bottle to mist the soil gently.
  5. Place the trays or pots in a warm location, ideally between 70-80°F (21-27°C). A heating mat can help maintain the temperature.
  6. Seeds should germinate within 5-10 days. Once seedlings emerge, move them to a location with bright, indirect light.

Growing Thai Basil:

  1. When seedlings have at least two sets of true leaves and are 2-4 inches tall, they are ready to be transplanted outdoors or into larger pots.
  2. Choose a location with well-draining soil and 6-8 hours of sunlight daily. Space the plants 12-18 inches apart.
  3. Mix compost or aged manure into the planting area to improve soil fertility.
  4. Water the plants regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
  5. Add mulch around the base of the plants to help retain moisture and prevent weeds.
  6. Thai basil enjoys warm temperatures, so protect the plants from frost or extreme cold.
  7. Fertilize with a balanced, organic fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.

Harvesting Thai Basil:

  1. Harvest basil leaves as needed once the plant is 6-8 inches tall.
  2. For the best flavor, pick leaves early in the morning when essential oils are most potent.
  3. Pinch off the leaves or cut stems just above a set of leaves to encourage bushier growth.
  4. Regularly remove flowers to prolong the harvest and prevent the plant from going to seed.
  5. If you want to harvest seeds, allow a few flowers to develop and mature. Collect the seeds when the flower heads have dried and turned brown.
  6. Thai basil can be used fresh or dried. To dry the leaves, hang small bunches in a well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight. Store dried leaves in an airtight container.
