Description

THE herb to grow to cook with tomatoes and also invaluable for an authentic Greek salad. Excellent for drying for winter use too and lovely to pick as aromatic foliage for cut flower bunches.

Care Tips

Keep well-watered if growing in containers and apply a regular liquid feed throughout summer. Cut right back to the base in winter. To keep harvesting through winter, move pots under cover somewhere bright and frost-free.
