The ideal plant to edge your flower bed. Makes a neat trim border. Low, compact and sweetly scented. Origin: Mediterranean.
Very easy to grow. Direct seed in garden after the soil has thoroughly warmed in the spring, covering seed with 1/2 cm (1/4 in) soil. For earlier flowers start seeds indoors 4 weeks in advance of intended date for moving plants to the garden. Germinates best at 21 C (72 F) usually in 7-14 days. Merely press seed into the surface of the soil. Water well until well established. Reduce temperature to near 15 C (60 F) after the seeds sprout for best results. Fertilize every 2 weeks with 10-52-17 and liquid seaweed for strong healthy plants. Garden spacing 25 cm (10 in) apart.
