Product Information

Our Sweet Italian Basil seeds will grow into an herb with an ultra pleasing aroma and a delicious taste.

The leaves of this herb are attractive and contain a spicy flavor that makes green salads, tomato & cheese dishes, soups, and omelettes even more delicious!

The entire plant has a very pleasing aroma and it makes a great companion for growing tomato plants.

Sow Easy seeds are pelleted with an all-natural coating made from a mix of clay, perlite, and FDA-approved food coloring. This coating adds some bulk to small seeds and stands out in the soil, making direct sowing and accurate spacing easier than ever. However, the coating does add a few days to the germination time when compared to uncoated seed.
