  • Soil: Well-drained soil enriched with compost.

  • Feeding: Feed with a general-purpose fertiliser every few weeks during flowering (optional).

Harvesting & Enjoying:

  • Pick flowers and leaves regularly: Harvest young blooms and leaves throughout the season to encourage further growth.
  • Edible: Use your harvest in salads, sandwiches, or as a unique garnish.
  • Drying: Dry leaves for later use as seasoning.
