A much used and well loved herb. A perennial that is hardy in the south and needs poor soil, good drainage and does not like acid in the soil. Numerous culinary uses as well as medicinal and aromatic virtues. It is often grown as a standard by those with talent in topiary. For this reason most of our trees are grown as 'single whips';
for those who want to grow them as bushes, all that is
needed is to pinch out the growing point.
The plants are grown in 9cm(3inch) pots, which are not included in the item to keep postage reasonable. Included in the item, where available, is the coloured label as seen in the photograph, which gives cultural and usage tips.
