Aromatic Green Herb Plants For Sale | Genovese Basil

As the staple herb of classic Italian cuisine, Genovese Basil (or Sweet Basil) is not only an essential ingredient for traditional pesto but also an attractive addition to garden beds and containers. Large, vigorous, tender green leaves give way to a deliciously sweet and slightly spicy flavor. This aromatic cultivar appreciates warmer climates, so be sure to wait for the frost to pass before planting.

When the tips are pinched regularly, plants will take on a full, bushy form that looks lovely alongside other culinary herbs. Genovese Basil is slow to bolt, but once it does, feel free to use the edible flowers as a garnish for salads, pasta, drinks, and more. We've made it easy for you by shipping our Genovese Basil as 4" potted plants, all ready to grow! You can also bring some indoors and grow on a sunny windowsill all winter.

Gardening success is a shared responsibility. We assume full responsibility for delivering healthy, true-to-name plants and bulbs, along with planting and care instructions so you’ll know how to care for your new plants. We trust you to be responsible for planting promptly, following the growing information provided with your plants and on our website, as well as giving your plants appropriate care.

We guarantee that the bulbs and plants you receive will be:

  • Healthy Plants: Top size and in prime condition.
  • Responsibly Grown: Never taken from the wild.
  • True to Name: The varieties you ordered & clearly labeled.
  • Supported By: Simple planting instructions & detailed growing guides.

Some of the bulbs, perennials and potted plants we offer are easier to grow than others. Every plant is a weed somewhere on earth and will be native in one of the endless micro climates, making that plant incredibly easy to grow.

Because of the differing environmental conditions, we cannot be assured that Mother Nature will treat them perfectly. We make every attempt to educate our customer on how to succeed with our extensive growing instructions on our website. We can’t guarantee that you won’t get weeks of cold rain just after your spring planting, and then a freeze. The same goes for record heat, pests, etc. These things aren’t the fault of the plants and we don’t replace plants that are lost for reasons out of our control.

For greatest success, please open the package immediately, inspect your purchase, and read our detailed growing guides. This is critical to robust plants that flower with profusion!
