Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Plants grow well in full sun, ample water and rich sandy soil. Sow directly in the ground — 1/4 in. deep — in early spring. Provide 4-6 in. of space in all direction and allow to grow in bunches. Do NOT thin. Divide every three years to keep vigorous.
Pick in the early morning when aromatic oils are at their flavorful best. Harvest as soon as the leaves are a few inches long. Snipping to two inches above the ground will encourage new growth.
