Basil - Fino verde


Fino verde basil

Ocimum basilicum

c. 650 seeds = 1 gram

Refined looks, elegant features and a sophisticated flavour, Fino verde is a real connoisseur’s basil. This lovely compact basil bush looks breathtaking in containers. Small, narrow leaves are sweeter and more tender than the large leaf varieties with a hint of 
spice. Fino verde makes insanely good pesto.

Start sowing in October and transplant the last of your Fino verde outside in early January. Basil needs a warm position with full sun, good soil, drainage and heat. Being the darling that it is, doesn’t like to be shaded by other plants. Add more compost if the 
leaves aren’t deep green. Pinch out tops throughout growing to encourage strong, bushy plants.
