ANNUAL VARIETIES are easily grown from outdoor sowings April-May. TENDER VARIETIES should be sown under glass in March and planted out in May. Both types mature during summer. Sow PERENNIAL VARIETIES outdoors during March-May. These will develop into strong plants by summer of the following year, and will thrive for many years. Harvest July-October.

Herbs have many uses for flavouring, garnishing, fragrance, medicinal or purely ornamental.
