In this study five different substrates were used, such as: compost; mixture of compost, Lumbrikus H and garden soil; mixture of compost and Lumbrikus H; mixture of compost, Lumbrikus H and peat Galicina and Seedling Klassman substrate. Basil seedling was produced in containers according to "speeding" system. The studies have shown that the best quality of basil seedling of varieties Genovese and Lattuga is achieved when the mixture of substrates Compost, Lumbrikus H and Galicina peat are applied in the volume proportion of 50% : 30% : 20%.
