Detailed Product Info

Tulsi, considered a sacred plant in the Hindu religion, has been cultivated for at least 3000 years. Known as the "Incomparable One," "Queen of Herbs," and "Elixer of Life," the scent, as well as preparations of the plant have been used to heal for centuries. Today's plant scientists have classified Sacred Basil as an "adaptogen", a substance that helps us adapt mentally and physically to stressful circumstances. Whether seen as a physical or spiritual aid, this plant adds a sense of balance and an extraordinary aroma to your garden.

Growing Instructions

Start seeds indoors 6 weeks before last frost and transplant when plants have 2 sets of true leaves after threat of frost has passed. Can also be direct sown outdoors after last frost and thinned to indicated spacing. Basil requires moderate fertility and water. Harvest when plants are bushy, before flowers form by cutting the stems above smaller, leafy growth. Tulsi basil can be dried immediately after harvesting and kept for months. Tulsi self-sows.
