Half hardy Annual

Description – A bushy plant producing a mass of pale green, pointed leaves with a zesty lemon flavour when rubbed or crushed. The plants stand well in condition having good outdoor weather tolerance. Makes an attractive ‘ornamental edible’ in a patio container. White flowers. RHS AGM.

Sowing – Sow seed on the surface of good, free-draining, seed compost. Cover with a fine sprinkling of vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and place at 20-25C (68-77F) until after germination which takes 14-21 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination. Keep compost on the dry side at all times, water lightly as seedlings emerge.

Growing – Transplant seedlings when large to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Grow on in cooler conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart.

Harvest – All year
