How To Grow Lemon Basil From Herb Seed: Sow Basil seeds in the garden after all danger of frost has passed. For areas with short growing seasons, start herb seeds indoors 4 - 8 weeks before setting out. Grow Lemon Basil in a rich, well-drained, soil and in full sun. Pinch the tip from the center shoot of the Lemon Basil seedlings after they have grown for 6 weeks to force side growth and prevent early flowering. If flower stalks develop, simply snip them off.
