Sowing with seed tape is an easy way to achieve a beautiful garden. Seed tape keeps seed in place until germination. It is biodegradable and reduces the need to thin overcrowded seedlings. Simply cut the tape to fit your growing area, place in a shallow trench, cover with soil, water and keep evenly moist. Instruction booklet included for your gardening success!

There is nothing like the aroma of basil in the summer! This is the true, Italian pesto basil from the Genoa area of Italy, pesto capital of the world. Italian Genovese has a particularly strong fragrance and flavor, making it excellent for almost any basil dish, especially pesto (classic pesto recipe printed inside packet). Edible flowers add charm to salads. A good container variety — grow basil indoors in the winter, in a warm, sunny location.
Approximately 60 seeds.
