Ratings & Reviews

Good germination

Very quick and easy to grow. You gets lots of flowers per bush. Easy to dry for tea. Regular plant in my garden.

Love it

Easy to germinate and grow. I enjoyed teas from this seed last year. But unfortunately I didnt know much how to grow. Plant one seedling in one big pot about 30cm diameter.
