  • Water lightly everyday

If you want your basil to keep growing, you have to take it outdoors.

  • 1

    Plant it in the ground, sheltered from the wind, with soil rich in nutrients. If kept in a balcony it is best to repot it to a bigger pot.

  • 2

    If it is really hot, you may water it every day. If the leaves start to fade and droop a little, you need to water it immediately.

  • 3

    Add general plant food to the water every second week.

You can pick the shoots regularly for culinary purposes.

It is important that you never cut the stem directly above ground, only the upper, fresh shoots.

Basil is an annual plant, so after it has flowered and seeded, it dies. Harvest outdoor basil before the first frosts.

Before use, rinse under cold running water.

Once you have picked the basil leaves it is better to tear rather than cut them, as the edges may turn black. It’s perfectly safe to eat but doesn’t look as appealing.

The stems of basil are great for use in stocks & sauces.
