Cultivation advice Basil GENOVESE 6M (3X2M) Seed Tapes 

  • Sow Feb – Apr direct to the growing position.
  • Prepare the soil in your chosen growing location, removing any weeds and raking to a fine tilth.
  • Make a shallow drill in the soil and simply roll out the tape in the groove. Tape can be cut to suit row length.
  • Cover very thinly with soil, water lightly, mark the row with a label and ensure the soil is kept moist.
  • The seed is pre-spaced on the tape; however, you may need to do a small amount of thinning on some varieties as they develop depending on the germination rate achieved.
