Basil is a very fast and easy to germinate. I was given some pieces of Basil that had seed pods all over it the other day. They told to just stick these sticks in the pot and watch what happens.
So I went home with my Basil sticks and I pulled a couple seed pods off and sprinkled them throughout the pot and just placed the rest right on top of the soil. It has been about 4 days since I did this. I went out this morning and to my surprise there are loads of sprouts!!
I really like the way Basil smells in the garden and I also use it a lot when I am cooking so to be able to go outside and pick fresh Basil will be great!! Here are some pictures of my new Basil sprouts!!
