Vigorous grower, great for the indoor herb gardener. It provides a warm fragrant, spicy scent. Good in stir fries, and for adding a bit of a tropical feel to your home or garden.
Keep it on a windowsill but protect from midday sun as it can scorch the leaves. If it starts to wilt, give it a big drink and it will soon perk up. Watering twice a week works well.
All herbs are 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. (
