    Loose clusters of white flowers in late summer and aromatic light to mid-green leaves. Tarragon is perfect for growing in a terracotta container in full sun. Sprigs of the aromatic foliage can be harvested throughout the growing season, for flavouring chicken and fish dishes and for making tarragon vinegar or in sauces.

  • Garden care: To prevent tarragon from spreading and becoming invasive it should be grown in a sunken container, with adequate drainage holes. Lift and divide each year in spring, replanting the younger, vigorous sections of the plant in fresh compost.
