Lime Basil Product Details

Botanical Name: Ocimum americanum

Height: 12 in - 24 in

Spread: 12 in - 18 in

Sun/Shade: Full Sun, Part Shade

Foliage: small bright green lance-shaped leaves

Days To Maturity: 60 DAYS

Form: compact, mounding plants

Soil Requirements: Moist, well-drained loam

Pruning: Always cut basil by taking off the tops of the stems, about a third of the way down, to an intersection of new leaves. This will indicate to the plant to start growing the tiny new leaves into branches of more leaves. If you just pull of the leaf you want, you will get no new growth at all and your plant will start to stunt and begin making flowers. Once your plant starts this process of making flowers, if they are not trimmed off your plant will make seeds from the flowers and die soon after. S

Comments: Compact, attractive plants add a refreshing, lime fragrance and a zesty bite to your food.
