$1.85 $3.70
Licorice basil is a strong, flavorful variety of basil which grows into vibrant green plants with hints of purple on the foliage. A type of Thai basil, these plants are not only beautiful, but reward growers as an immensely fragrant addition to the home garden. As the name would imply, both licorice and anise are prevalent in the flavor of the basil. Licorice, growing in the ground or in containers, thrives in warm weather climates which receive ample sunlight.

Growing Instructions:
In the spring, direct sow once the soil has warmed to about 70 degrees F. In order for the seed to germinate, which typically takes 10 to 15 days, press it firmly onto the soil's surface. Light is necessary for the seed to sprout. If you want to start indoors, plant the seed in flats 4–6 weeks before the last frost, maintain the soil just moist enough for germination, and move the seedlings outside as soon as the weather permits. Rich, light soils are ideal for this plant's growth; sow a fresh crop every three to four weeks for continual bloom.
