A delicious and lemony herb with a hint of ginger - a favourite. This has survived outside for years at Perch Hill, planted at the foot of a south-facing wall.

Care Tips

Harvest leaves by cutting back stems above a pair of leaves, regular cutting prevents the plant fdrom becoming 'leggy'. Cut back to half its size in the autumn and mulch to protect the roots if growing in a border.
