Lemon Basil is a favorite for flavoring pea soups, fish dishes, and other recipes when a lemony taste adds extra zest.

When and Where to Plant: Select a sunny location and sow seeds as soon as the ground can be worked. For earlier crop start seeds indoors. Makes an attractive pot plant. Cultivate soil and enrich with vegetable food. Firm soil over seed.
Care: Keep soil moist and clean.
Harvesting: Store in a cool, dry place. Heat and moisture will severely reduce germination.

    Comments about American Meadows Lemon Basil Seeds:

    The seeds came up in less than a week! I'm starting seeds in an old apple container. This was the first to sprout. My only con is that the seeds were too small to spread out and are very crowded. Delivery was very prompt and packaging was secure. Will definitely order from again.

    Comments about American Meadows Lemon Basil Seeds:

    Kinda hard to grow, but in the end it makes it up! I make a cheese soup that I add some to and it makes it tast great, but also has a kick to it! It keeps away the blood suckers and most bugs but not the snails! I recomend having somekind of snail poison!
