    Dark Opal Basil is a variety of basil known for its deep purple leaves and strong, sweet aroma. The leaves of this variety are smaller than other varieties of basil, but they are more flavorful. It's a great addition to salads, sandwiches, pizzas, and pasta dishes.

    To grow Dark Opal Basil, you will need:

    • Well-drained, fertile soil
    • Warm temperatures (70-80F is ideal)
    • 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 or transplant seedlings after all danger of frost has passed. Space the plants about 18 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. Pinch the tips of the basil plant to promote bushier growth and prevent it from getting too tall.

    6. Harvest the basil leaves as needed, but avoid cutting too much of the stem, to ensure the plant will continue to produce leaves for a longer period.
