Growing Basil Seedlings


Basil is a very useful plant. It is used in the preparation of many dishes, as seasoning, freshly added to salads and sauces, it is flavored with oil. To grow basil in the garden from seed is very difficult, so most gardeners first prepare for planting seedlings. Greens from a shrub grown from seedlings can be cut in two weeks after planting in a pot or in an open field.

Do not be afraid to collect basil early. The more you pinch the young shoots and the more often you prune, the stronger the plant bushes and the faster new growths occur.

In order to grow quality seedlings, you need to make a substrate for the seeds and sprout basil correctly.
