For zones 3-12 basil is a staple in your Organic herb garden and prefer full sun. Basil can be started in pots 6-8 weeks before your last frost in the spring. Use deeply watered soil and place them on the surface lightly covered with vermiculite or sand as they need light to germinate. When seedlings develop their first set of true leaves and are at least 4 inches tall, transplant to the garden about 4 inches apart. To direct seed, in the spring work your garden soil 6" deep, scatter seeds and cover lightly with peat or compost. Basil thrives in deeply watered soil and responds favorably as a container plant. Containers dry out quickly, be sure to water often and place container in a shady area in extreme heat.
