Tips & tricks: Plant out after the last frost at a distance of 30cm from each other and water in well. As the plant grows, harvest the tips just above a leaf node. The plant will then grow two new shoots from the place where you harvested it every time, forming a small bush that will keep on producing until it gets too cold or wet in the autumn.

Sold in pots with multiple seedlings in. You can gently separate these and plant them out separately.
