Queenette Thai Basil is normally fairly low maintenance and is normally quite easy to grow, as long as a level of basic care is provided throughout the year. Being aware of the basic soil, sun and water preferences will result in a happier and healthier plant.
Enjoys a full sun position in your garden and remember to water moderately. Keep in mind when planting that Queenette is thought of as half hardy, so remember to protect this plant from frosts and low temperatures. Use USDA Hardiness Zone 4 - 10 as your guideline for the appropriate climate for this plant. Ensure your soil is loamy and has a ph of between 6.0 and 7.5 as Thai Basil is a weakly acidic soil to weakly alkaline soil loving plant.
