Basil - Seed & Pot Starter Kit
Basil is a fast and easy growing herb that pairs beautifully with tomato and garlic. Basil grows as an annual in most areas, so be sure to make the most of your harvest before the plant dies down in winter.
Once your basil seedling has grown to about 5cm, simply fill the terracotta pot with soil and plant the whole 'starter' pot, seedling and all, into the terracotta pot!
Your grow kit will contain:
- 1 x Basil seed packet.
- 1 x Coir starter pot.
- 1 x Peat soil pellet.
- 1 x Classic terracotta planter pot (13cm wide x 13cm tall).
*potting soil for terracotta pot not included - this saves you plenty of money in postage!
