Basil Gustosa is one of the easiest herbs to grow indoors. Seeds are best started off indoors from late February to mid-summer. Fill a 7, 5 cm pot with seed compost, firm down and sow a few seeds of basil Gustosa over the topmost will germinate so only sow a few more seeds than you need. Cover with a thin layer of vermiculite, water gently, and pop it into a propagator. If you don’t have one, don’t worry. You can cover the pot with a small, clear freezer bag and secure it with an elastic band. Germination usually takes between 10 days to 2 weeks at 15-18C.


You don't need to worry much about your plants much as it is very easy to grow. Plant basil gustosa outside after all danger of frost has passed, choosing a sunny, sheltered spot with well-drained soil or grow plants in containers. You can keep a plant in a pot going all summer long by moving it into a slightly bigger container every time roots show through the drainage holes in the bottom, plants could end up in a 20cm container. Keep plants bushy and productive by pinching the tips of branches regularly and remove any flowers that start to develop. That's all you have to do.
