Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Plants grow well in pots, window boxes and prepared garden beds that are located in full sun. Start indoors under lights 6- to 8-weeks before the last frost date or direct sow after all danger from frost has passed. Space plants 10 inches apart — further in areas with high humidity.
Begin harvesting 5- to 6-weeks after transplanting outside, or when plants are growing vigorously. Harvest herbs before they flower to provide the best flavor. Leaves are highly aromatic and their taste improves with drying. To dry, tie cuttings in small bundles and hang upside down in a well-ventilated, dark room. When dry, remove the leaves from all stems and store whole. Crush or grind just before use.
