Description

Organic Hyssop. Hyssopus officinalis.

Not really an edible herb, although flowers and leaves can be used sparingly in salads, it’s more of a bushy perennial shrub. It’s great for bees and the beautiful long blue flowering spikes with the dark green foliage are amazing in your garden. Grows to 60cms.

How to grow:
Sow seeds in pots on heat from March. Prick out when large enough to handle and transplant outside into well prepared weed free soil from May.

Problem solving:
It’s drought resistant, can tolerate calcareous conditions and loves full sun. Said to be disliked by cabbage white butterflies.

Favourite ways to eat them:
Not to be ingested during pregnancy.

Cultural history:
Used traditionally as a medicinal herb for coughs and as an antiseptic wash.

Avg contents:  300 seeds.
