Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Plants require full sun to light shade and a well-drained soil to thrive. Start indoors, covering lightly with soil and keeping moist until seedlings appear. Transplant outside after the last frost, spacing 6- to 12-inches apart in all directions. If you prefer, direct-sow in prepared garden beds two weeks before last frost. Prune back to encourage compact growth.
To harvest, snip seedlings sparingly until the second season. For the best flavor, take cuttings in the morning just before bloom. Strip leaves from the stem and use them fresh or dried. To dry, cut the stems just as the flowers start to open. Hang to dry in small bunches.
