Planting and Harvesting Tips:
This popular culinary herb can tolerate many soil types but does best in light, well drained conditions with plenty of sunlight. Sow indoors under plant lights several months before setting outside. Seedlings grow very slowly. Plants grow well in containers and can be brought inside during winter months. Do NOT overwater.
Harvest the aromatic and pungent leaves anytime throughout the year for fresh use. For best flavor, harvest in the morning when aromatic oils are at their flavorful peak. Prune 3- to 4-inches from one branch rather than cutting 1/2 inch from a number of branches. To dry, tie the cuttings in small bunches and hang upside down in a well-ventilated, dark room.
