Annual Herb. The leaves of this attractive herb have a spicy flavor which makes green salads, tomato and cheese dishes, soups and omelets extra delicious. The entire plant has a very pleasing aroma. Good companion for tomato plants.
Start seed indoors near a sunny window 6 weeks before transplanting to the garden. Or, sow in garden in full sun when frost danger is over and ground is warm. Performs best in rows 2 feet apart. Thin or transplant plants 10 inches apart when they are 3 inches tall.
Remove flower buds to encourage leaf growth. Begin harvesting all but 2 or 3 leaves at the base of each branch before flowers bloom. Preserve leaves by drying or freezing.
