Hyssopus officinalis 'Roseus'
Hyssop hails from the Middle East and has a strong menthol scent. A tea made from the dried flowers and honey is great for relieving coughs and chest troubles. Leaves can be used in cooking, they are good with meats.
Can be grown indoors in a sunny spot. Prune back in spring to encourage new growth and to keep things tidy.
Planted in a peat-reduced compost mix with added perlite for extra drainage.
Choose whether you receive your herb planted up in an Italian terracotta pot, with a matching saucer - or if you already have a pot in mind, keep it in its nursery pot.
