Celebrate St. Patrick's
Invite friends, and family, have lot's of fun, and get ready to welcome SPRING with this happy attitude!
Note 1 - Rosemary, Lavender, and Tarragon, do not produce quality plants from seeds. Rosemary & Lavender's seeds will germinate but even so, plants will not look as strong as the ones propagated from cuttings.
Tarragon of any culinary interest is the fragrant one, called French Tarragon. It will propagate through division these days.
Seeds called Tarragon (they are of Russian variety) offered by many stores, germinate very easily. However the plant, apart from vague visual resemblance, is really a weed, and of no value in the kitchen. If you have none of these plants, yet, get the starter plant from the nursery, first.
