Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Prefers full sun to light shade and a rich, moisture-laden, organic soil to grow well. Start indoors up to 8 weeks before the last frost in spring. Move seedlings outside when the soil begins to warm and all danger of frost has passed. Space 3-4 feet apart in all directions. Plants grow large and should be located near the back of your garden.
Leaves are ready to harvest after the first growing season. For best flavor, pick young leaves in the early morning when aromatic oils are at their flavorful peak. Best used fresh, but can be stored frozen in plastic bags or dried. To dry, hang bundles upside down in a dark, well ventilated room and store in air-tight jars.
