Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Grows equally well in garden beds or containers and prefers full sun, regular water and fast draining soil. Sow indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost date in spring. Lightly cover and keep planting trays warm. Seedlings can be moved outside after all danger of frost has passed. Space 6-12 inches apart in all directions.
Plants are ready to harvest when they reach 6 inches tall. For best flavor, pick leaves in the early morning when aromatic oils are at their flavorful best. Use fresh or freeze in plastic bags. Dry by hanging bundles upside down in a dark, well ventilated room and store in air-tight jars.
