This herb dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: tender (will need winter protection)

    A wonderful addition to a warm and sunny patio or herb garden, the foliage of this decorative herb will release a strong pineapple-like scent each time it is brushed past or gently touched. Not only do the leaves smell great, but they are also edible, and they can be used to jazz up summer drinks or salads - and in late summer, you have the added bonus of showy clusters of bright scarlet flowers to enjoy!

  • Garden care: Move plants to a frost-free place when the temperatures start to drop (a greenhouse or unheated conservatory would be ideal), and keep drier in winter. Trim the tips throughout the growing season to encourage bushier growth.
