    Italian Large Leaf Basil, also known as Ocimum basilicum, is a variety of basil known for its large, fragrant leaves and its strong, distinctive flavor. This variety is often used in Mediterranean and Italian dishes, such as pasta sauces, pestos, and salads.

    To grow Italian Large Leaf Basil, you will need:

    • Well-drained, fertile soil
    • Full sun
    • Seeds or seedlings

    Growing Instructions:

    1. Prepare the soil by tilling or digging to a depth of at least 8 inches. Add compost or other organic matter to improve the soil's fertility.

    2. Sow the seeds in the spring or summer, after the last frost date. Space the plants about 12 inches apart, and cover with 1/4 inch of soil.

    3. Water the basil regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.

    4. Fertilize the basil with a balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.

    5. Keep the basil free of weeds and remove any diseased or damaged leaves to help prevent disease.

    6. Harvest the leaves as needed, making sure to cut above a leaf node to encourage bushier growth.
