If you have grown basil before, you may notice the growth is a little slow. Basil is a temperate-region species where it takes a longer time to grow bigger in the colder area, especially during the winter. Depending on the variety, the growth rate is usually moderate to slow.
Interestingly, basil has mucilaginous seeds. When the seed gets wet, it forms a sticky gel-like capsule. The main function of that is to protect seeds from the harsh environment, including the chemicals. Also, it helps to promote seed development . So, make sure that you spread the seeds evenly and don’t clump the seeds on one spot.
