Planting and Growing: Start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before frost or sow seed directly after the last frost and when soils have reached at least 60°F. The typical seed germination rate is 50%. Pinch plant ends during early growth to establish bushier habit. Keep the leaves trimmed back to encourage new growth as it matures.

Harvesting and Storage: Harvest leaves as desired. Leaves retain flavor well when dried; dry away from sun to preserve color and flavor, and store in an airtight container.
