How to grow
Sow seeds in spring or propagate by root division in spring or
autumn. This herb is too tall for container growing and it has a very strong
taste. Use it sparingly, dried added to pizza and spaghetti dishes.
Rich sandy soil 7.5cm deep in water 10cm deep. It
can be grown in an ordinary garden i.e. not in running water, but this may not
be very successful.
Small shiny rounded leaves on a fleshy stem. Grow to a height of
about 30cm. Tiny white flowers in the summer develop into long curved seed pods.
The plant has a peppery flavour.
Sow under glass in sandy soil in early spring. Plant out in early summer in
light ,rich soil in a sunny sheltered position. If grown in a container it can
be taken indoors for the winter. This is a good herb for meat dishes especially
meatloaf and also goes well with marrow and potatoes. Another tasty use for it
is to add it to the rice stuffing for green peppers.
