How

Sow direct where they are to grow or in trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Press lightly into surface - do not cover as seeds need light to germinate. Water with a mist spray. Transplant or thin when large enough to handle.

Care

Choose a full sun to semi-shade position in well drained soil. Add Yates Blood & Bone before planting. Plants need good drainage and will tolerate dryness once established. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

Cut back when untidy. Eat leaves with other food or infuse in hot water to make a herbal tea. Traditional remedy for reducing headaches and inflammation. Do not ingest when pregnant or breast feeding.
