A very flavorful Italian basil that is just perfect for pesto and all things Italian…

Annual. Italian sweet basil. Very flavorful and aromatic, Genovese has long been a favorite. Productive, strong plant produces plenty of leaves when kept harvested. Perfect for Pesto and all things Italian. Slower to bolt to seed than most basils. Keep it pinched, watered, and fertilized, and it will produce abundantly until frost. Basil does well in containers.

Within 24 hours of receiving your order, we will e-mail you with a shipping date that we choose based on your last frost date. You are welcome to change the shipping date. Just respond to the e-mail and tell us when you want your plants. Our first shipping date is late March, weather permitting. We will not have plants available before then.
Our plants are sustainably raised in our own potting mix. We use only organic fertilizers and sprays if needed. We have been growing and selling plants since 1997.

Our plants are shipped in individual 3″ deep pots. They are ready to be planted out in your garden.

We package our plants with extreme care so they arrive undamaged at your doorstep. Each plant is tucked into its own padded sleeve. The soil in each pot is covered so it will not spill out. A plant tag identifying the variety is included with each plant.

We ship every Monday and Tuesday, from late March through May, according to your location or your request. We currently ship to every state except Hawaii and Alaska.
