Aromatic, dark green, narrow leaves provide interest throughout the year and can be added to a multitude of dishes to enhance the flavour. From mid-spring to early summer (and often again in autumn), lilac-blue to white flowers appear towards the ends of the stems. Ideal for adding structure to the herb garden, it will thrive in a warm, sunny position - ideally close to a path or entranceway where you can brush past them and release their delicious scent. The leaves can be used fresh, dried or frozen and are best harvested in spring, when new shoots are emerging.

  • Garden care:
    Tip-prune the stems regularly to encourage bushy, compact growth, but avoid cutting it back too hard into old wood. When planting outside, choose a sunny spot and allow 45 - 60cm between each plant (30cm if you are creating a hedge).

  • Sowing instructions:
    Surface-sow in trays or pots and water well, allowing the compost to become quite dry before repeating. Thin out when large enough to handle and pot on individually into 7.5cm pots.

  • Sow: Sept to Oct or March to May
    • Humans: Skin allergen
