A half-hardy perennial.
Though not as hardy as the Russian Tarragon
the flavour of the French is vastly superior.
The plants, that grow to about two foot(60cm),
like a poor, dry, well drained soil with
a sunny aspect and are ideal for tubs or containers.
Protection from the wet and the worst of
the cold in winter pays dividends.
Chiefly used in sauces and vinegars,
but is also delicious with chicken and egg dishes.
The plants are grown in 9cm(3inch) pots, which are not included in the item to keep postage reasonable. Included in the item is the coloured label as seen in the photograph, which gives cultural and usage tips.
Hardy = frost tolerant. Half-hardy = likes winter protection. Tender = will not survive frosts.
