Classic pesto basil! This herb gives you a double dose of both fragrance and flavor. A wonderful choice for growing both inside and outside. To start inside plant seeds 1/4 inch deep in starting mix. Transplant 10" apart after all danger of frost has passed. To start outside the plant in late spring when the danger of frost is passed. Thin to 10" apart. Great for both containers and gardens!
