How to Grow Lemon Basil

The vibrant green foliage and delicate flowers of Lemon Basil add a pop of color and texture to any space, making it a perfect choice for herb gardens, window boxes, and even hanging baskets.

The Lemon Basil plant is easy to grow and thrives in well-draining soil with full sun exposure. With proper care, this herb can grow up to 24 inches tall and wide, producing abundant foliage that is both beautiful and fragrant.

Lemon Basil leaves can be harvested as soon as the plant has reached a height of around 6 inches. Pinch off the top leaves regularly to encourage the plant to bush out and produce more foliage. Avoid over-harvesting and leave at least one-third of the plant intact to ensure continued growth and productivity.
