A sensational sharp lemony herb bursting with scent.


Raised in an organic and peat-free environment, grow in a sheltered spot, such as the foot of a sunny wall – if the roots are locked in cold, damp soil all winter it will die. Alternatively, grow in a container (minimum 30cm diameter) or dig up young plants in the autumn, put in a pot, and keep in a frost-free greenhouse for planting out the following spring. If growing in a container, water thoroughly to encourage the roots to establish and water once a week from then on, keeping the soil moist but not allowing the roots to become clogged.
