How

Sow direct where they are to grow or into trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Firm down, water gently and keep moist but not too wet through the germination period. Transplant or thin out when 5-7cm high.

Care

Choose a full sun or part shade position in well drained, sandy soil.  Add compost and Yates Blood & Bone before planting. Water regularly and apply Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food for stronger plants.

Hint

Cut back when leggy or after flowering to encourage fresh new growth.  Makes an excellent groundcover beneath roses. Most cats enjoy rolling in this lemony, mint-scented herb.

Storage

Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
