Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Organic Basil, Genovese
Organic Basil, Genovese (36 days)
Vigorous, tall growing, large leaved basil that is a must in any pesto. Can grow up to 2' tall with leaves 1-2" wide. During the summer when we have a surplus of basil we will make our pesto, freeze it in ice cube trays and then remove them to store in a freezer container. This is a perfect way to get pesto even during the dreariest days of winter.
Sarah @ Super Herbs.net says... "Ocimum basilicum 'Genovese' is an annual native to India, Africa, and Asia. One of the most popular herbs, it is now cultivated in all temperate climates throughout the world. Of all the basils to grow, and there are about 150 varieties, Genovese basil is one of the best because it yields 7 to 8 cuttings and makes the best pesto."
"Try a cup of basil tea as an after dinner drink to aid digestion and expel gas. Basil tea is also good for stomach cramps and vomiting. An extract from the seeds has been shown to have an antibacterial effect. Combine it with wood betony and skullcap for nervous conditions or with elecampane and hyssop for coughs. Rub leaves on insect bites to reduce itching."
Loved it. Gtermination was quite fast and my basil seeds were a success. Still continuing to grow and now setting their own seeds for me to harvest. :)
Zinnias and Basil!!
Wonderful plants! Very good strong basil seedlings and the Zinnias stop every guest to my home in their tracks!
Great service and seeds
I received my seeds on time and they are growing nicely.
New Zealand clover
I ordered from this company three times. Each time I received each order timely, and found it very easy and convenient to to use the website. My clover is just starting to come up, so I can't comment on how it is, except that it germinated evenly where I wanted it, on soil that had sandy and clay areas.
Seeds came quick planted and all growing well thanks for lettuce seeds using for my Herb Garden kitsp
