Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Plants are not fussy and will grow in almost all conditions. However, they will thrive in sites with full sun that are sheltered from winds. Sow indoors 8 to 10 weeks before the last frost and set outside — spacing 1 to 2 ft. apart — after all danger from frost has passed.

Flowering doubles the concentration of oil in leaves, so for the strongest flavor, do NOT harvest until plants have produced flowers. Non-flowering varieties should be harvested in late spring. To dry, tie cuttings in small bundles and hang upside down in a well-ventilated area. When dry, remove the leaves and store whole. Crush or grind just before use.
