Hyssop - Tricolour
This is a beautifully aromatic herb with a pungent tang suitable for meat dishes, beans and salads. It is an attractive plant for the border where it will attract bees and butterflies. This exclusive blend brings together blue, pink and white blooms and is ideal for the herb garden and the border.
Sow April to May at 15-20C on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost. Do not cover the seed. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 14-21 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into trays or 7.5cm pots. Grow on in cooler conditions for 1-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 45cm apart. Will grow in any well drained soil in full sun. Harvest leaves as and when required.
