Basil Monet's Mix
We named this blend of Genovese and Red Rubin basils after Claude Monet, who loved to combine the colors of purple and green in his watercolors. Plants are tall with large shiny leaves, great fragrance and flavor. Some plants may be mottled with both green and purple.
Basil is a 'thirsty' plant, thriving in warm weather. Keep soil moist, supplementing rainfall in dry weather to approximate 3 inches of water per week. Remove flowers regularly to encourage more leaf growth.
