    A shrubby evergreen with highly aromatic leaves that are traditionally used for flavouring meats. They can be grown as a low informal hedge ideally where you can brush past them. The leaves can be used fresh dried or frozen.

  • Growing Instructions:

    Sow in March to May in pots or trays on the surface of barely moist seed compost and cover with a sprinkling of finely sieved compost. Place in a propagator at 24-27C until they germinate which can be slow and erratic up to 40 days.Transplant the seedlings into small pots or cells until large enough to plant outdoors. Plant 60cm apart in well prepared soil in full sun once the risk of frost has passed. The plants should survive for many years and can be trimmed to keep their shape.
