Why should you have Large Leaved Basil at home?

This variety, with its soothing virtues and sunny fragrance, is ideal to accompany your salads, to marry with your tomatoes or to unite with your mozzarella. Larged Leaved Basil is also the essential element of the delicious pesto alla Genovese sauce.

The term basil itself comes from the Greek basilikón: royal plant, which in turn comes from basileus, meaning king. This is an etymological proof of the prestige this plant has always enjoyed.

Product sheet

This growing medium, made in France from vegetable fibres, is optimized in nutrients, thus ensuring perfect taste and nutritional qualities for the Basil plant that will grow from it! The Basil seeds are labelled "Organic Agriculture" and of French origin. The seeds have been selected because they rigorously meet our requirements in order to offer you healthy, quality and environmentally friendly varieties. Choosing the right seed is indeed essential when you decide to grow a plant: fruit, a plant, flowers or aromatic herbs, and this, as well in your vegetable garden as outside and in the ground. This is why the Basil seeds we choose are all reproducible, of French origin and labelled "Organic Agriculture". All our seeds are reproducible so that the plants that grow from them have the same qualities as the mother aromatic plant. Reproducible Basil seeds improve naturally by adapting to the environment in which they grow. The soil, climate and living conditions are part of its genetic make-up and allow the Basil seedlings to adapt to external factors and thus produce more fruitful harvests. To ensure that we obtain robust varieties, we choose to place several seeds in our Basil Plant Clod. This means that you don't have to buy a new bag of seeds every time you sow. The organic seeds in the Plant Clod will allow you to obtain fertile plants of several seedlings. The seeds incorporated in our Plant Clods are, moreover, all labelled "Organic Agriculture". This label corresponds to a French certification which guarantees that the seeds meet strict specifications and are therefore organically grown. This certification ensures that the seeds of your aromatic plants present in your Mottes have been preserved from the use of any chemical input that is harmful to your health and bad for the environment. An organic seed thus guarantees you, on the one hand to avoid the pesticides present in traditional seeds, and on the other hand to be able to rediscover the true flavours of basil. Indeed, as your seeds and young shoots of your variety are not covered with chemicals, you will be able to appreciate its true taste directly at hand in your vegetable garden! The seeds in our Basil Plant Clods are therefore organic and reproducible. All the seeds in our Plant Clods also stem from French agriculture. They are of French origin and produced locally in order to make them benefit from their natural growing conditions, the soil, the sun and the amount of water they are used to and from which they benefit when sown in the ground. So, even if you don't have a garden, a terrace or a garden shed, you can still grow most herbs in a pot or in an indoor garden. This is the case for many varieties of herbs such as thyme, parsley and even varieties such as the cherry tomato. There are many possibilities in the indoor vegetable garden! The choice of these seeds is in accordance with our desire to support French agriculture, the work produced by our country's farmers and to pay them a fair price. The purchase of these organic seeds allows us to promote short circuits and thus to encourage a more virtuous economy rethought on a local scale. Thus, the choice of these organic seeds allows you to ensure the best traceability of the Basil plant to come. In addition, your Growing Pods can directly be delivered at your home and you will not have to worry about acquiring new seeds for each new sowing. The Growing Pods we offer are sold at a single price and allow you to grow all sorts of varieties easily in your vegetable garden. You will be able to rediscover or discover the true taste of the varieties of fruit, vegetables and herbs that you have decided to sow and germinate!
