TO PLANT DIRECTLY IN THE GARDEN

Spicy Globe seeds are coated with a natural clay material to make them easy to sow. When late spring weather has warmed up to the 50°F (10°C) range both day and night, sow seeds 1 inch apart in well worked, fertile soil or containers of fresh potting mix in full sun. Cover 1/4 inch deep, firm soil and keep the seed bed evenly moist. After seedlings are large enough to handle, thin or transplant 6 inches apart. For containers, transplant one seedling per 6 inch pot or 3 seedlings into a 12 inch pot.

TO START EARLY INDOORS

Sow 1 inch apart and 1/4 inch deep in a container of seed starting mix, 4 to 6 weeks before last expected frost. Keep warm and evenly moist and provide a good light source. When seedlings are large enough to handle and weather is above 50°F (10°C) both day and night, transplant outdoors. For containers, transplant one seedling per 6 inch pot or 3 seedlings into a 12 inch pot. Or plant along a garden border for a fragrant edging.

GROWING NOTES

Remember to plant basil outdoors only after nighttime temperatures stay above 50°F (10°C). In hot, dry weather, check and water plants in containers daily. Feed every 2 weeks to promote growth.
