not use heating mat. Keep moist, not letting the seeds dry out between
watering. DO NOT cover the seeds with soil! Also, the SOIL should be
kept consistently warm at 70-85F. Cool soils, below about 60-65F, even
just at night, will significantly delay or inhibit germination.
Additionally, overly warm soils, well above 90F, can inhibit germination
and provide ideal conditions for seed rot. Over watering can cause
fungal growth which leads to seed rot. Excess water can also bury seeds
deep in the soil where they will not be able break the surface. Water
when the soil surface just begins to dry. Please keep the container
covered with a plastic bag on the top of the fridge where the room
temperature is higher, therefore the soil temperature is perfect for
germination. Once the seedlings are about one inch tall, you can remove
the cover for 2-3 hours so they adapt to the sun light, temperature and
air humidity level. At this time, you may place the container closer to
the sun light. But keep them covered at night until they get stronger.
When the plants reach about 2" tall, transplant them into pots; set them
out in the garden when they reach 6" tall or after the last frost date.
How To Grow
Basil can be grown all year long in containers. It is suitable for apartment dwellers and gardeners who live in cool regions where the number of growing days are limited. Very easy to grow! Keep the soil moist but not saturated until germination occurs. In warm climates, the basil seeds can be directly started outdoors in prepared seedbeds or pots. The basil plants benefit from regular fertilizer feeding.
Store seeds away from children, sealed in their packaging in a cool,
dry, dark place, or in a fridge. Never store them in a freezer as the
sudden temperature drop is likely to kill them. Don't leave the seeds in
direct sunlight as the heat generated may kill.
