HR1022A - Cardinal Organic
Cardinal Organic basil seeds are CERTIFIED ORGANIC! Upright plants grow to 60cm (25") tall, with strongly aromatic, oval leaves, and growth so vigorous no pinching is needed. Cardinal is very useful as a culinary basil, but wait until it blooms! Dark scarlet flowers make this variety such a show-stopper that it will dominate your herb bed or flower border. In mid-summer the plants are crowned by surprisingly tall pagoda shaped flower clusters that are fragrant and attractive to pollinators. Grow some Cardinal Organic basil in containers in your patio herb garden and enjoy the flavour and colour all summer long. Basil prefers warm weather and full sun.

How To Grow
Planting basil from seed is truly enjoyable. Seeds germinate slowly, a bit faster when heated from below, and basil enjoys hot weather and full sun. Be sure to try Thai basil, holy basil, and red rubin basil — each variety has its own characteristics. Follow along with this handy How to Grow Basil from Seed Guide and grow some flavour.!
