Growing and Maintenance Tips:


Plant in a well-drained, average to dry soil, in full sun. Cut back in early spring and trim lightly after flowering to maintain a compact habit. Harvest leaves in the morning for fresh use or store by hanging them to dry. Leaves are most flavourful before flowering.
