Growing guide for Basil Greek Ball Seeds

Planting instructions

Start the seed germination process indoors. Basil greek ball is sensitive to the cold, so whether you are transplanting seedlings from indoors or have plants in the ground, watch the early spring temperatures and cover if necessary. As soon as the seedlings appear, move the potted container to a sunny spot. Prepare the soil for transplanting by removing any weeds, stones etc. Plant the seeds/seedlings in the ground about ¼-inch deep and 10 to 12 inches apart. Remember to lift away the flower heads as soon as they sprout to make sure that the leaves keep rising. Keep watering the plant as per requirement and the temperature outside. Soil can be fed with manure or cow dung for a long-lasting harvest.

Growing Requirements

pests

Some of the pests that attack basil leaves are Japanese Beetles and Soft-Bodied Insects - such as Aphids, Whiteflies etc. The pests can cause white/black spots on the leaves, slim, blotches, yellow leaves or lesions and grey mould.

soil

Basil greek ball grows well in rich, moist, well-drained loamy soil with a pH of 6 to 7.

spot

Basil greek ball needs 6 to 8 hours of sun every day. A sunny window sill is the best spot.

temperature

Basil greek ball is very sensitive to cold and even a slight cold can kill it. Basil likes warmer temperatures over 50°F/10°C. The ideal time to plant would be 2 weeks after the last frost in spring.

watering

Keep soil consistently moist throughout the growing season. Give water when the soil feels dry to touch. Water the plant on the base and not over the leaves.

how to harvest

The best time to harvest is right when the plant begins to bud (before the flowers bloom). Or if you don't have time to harvest any leaves, just pinch off the flowering portion. Leaves of basil greek ball must be pinched often to prevent the plant from going straight to seeding. If pruned regularly, twelve basil plants will produce 4 to 6 cups of leaves per week. Be sure to only harvest up to 2/3 of the entire plant, so it can continue producing. The best method for storing basil is freezing. Freezing will prevent the plant from losing any of its flavours. To quick-freeze basil, dry whole sprigs of basil and pack them in airtight containers.
