Description

Reliable, popular variety with scented leaves and flowers. Grow by path edges to release the scent, loved by bees.

A Best Buy variety as recommended by the Gardening Press and Consumer Groups.

Unbeatable as a low growing hedge, the flowers may be used to scent drawers of linen or in pot-pourri.

Sow indoors, February-June, 0.5cm (¼”) deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, unheated greenhouse, or on a warm kitchen windowsill. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 21-50 days. Pot on individually, when large enough to handle, to 7.5cm (3″) pots. Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out, into well-drained soil, September-October, 30cm (12″) apart. Flowers: July-September, the following year.

Tip: To help keep their shape, trim back plants in autumn, as soon as flowering has finished. Dried flowers retain their scent and can be used as potpourri.
