Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Easy to grow in pots or prepared beds with loose, well-draining soil. Sow 1/4 in. deep when spring temperatures warm and all danger of frost has passed — keep moist! In warmer zones, fall plantings may last through spring. Thin seedlings to 8-12 in. apart in all directions.
Pinch fresh leaves and stems as needed when plants are thriving. For best flavor, harvest in the early morning when aromatic oils are at their flavorful best. Do NOT cut off more than 1/3 of the leaves at one time. Use fresh — leaves store poorly.
