 Cultivation advice Herb Mexican Mint / Tarragon / Sweet Mace

  • Sow seeds 1/8″ deep under cover in soil mix from 6-8 weeks before the last frost. When the seedlings large enough to handle prick out into trays and grow on.
  • Pinch back tips to promote branching and well-shaped plant. to prevent plant lodging, or falling over in the wind..
  • Harden off before planting outside, after the last frost in your area.
  • Can be sown directly outside after all danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed.
  • Avoid over feeding as this will produce very lush weakly flavoured leaves and few flowers.
  • If left to self-seed this plant will readily spread (fast)
