650 s/g. All true basils are annuals. Trim plants back when flower heads appear for prolonged growth. They require warm soils for germination, full sun, and fertile soil for vigorous growth. Use leaves raw or cooked, fresh, or dried. Best sown late spring and into summer.

Sow 1 cm deep into warm soil in spring. Thin or transplant to 15 cm apart.  Feed heavily and  keep well watered to ensure vigorous growth.  Pinch out flower buds to prolong the picking period. Expect germination in 1 week depending on the soil temperature.
