As a hardy perennial, the fast-growing herb of life can be grown in cooler climates as an annual. Due to the aesthetic nature of these plants, they also make perfect house plants so pot them into a decorative container and bring them indoors during the winter season or all year round. Jiaogulan can be grown in almost all soil types providing it drains well. When grown in containers this immortality plant should be potted with a potting mix. This plant desires partial shade, however, will cope in full sunlight depending on how hot the climate is.
Due to the beautiful climbing nature of this 5 leaf ginseng provide a trellis for it to grow up or any other supporting structure you like. The curly tendrils will look amazing climbing up decorative obelisks. You should water your Jiaogulan herb plant often to keep the soil moist. If the soil dries, the plant may start to wilt. It will recover once watered.
Mint plants require plenty of water in hot weather. Mint tends to be a vigorous grower and it will spread quickly, so it’s best planted in a container with some compost. This also makes it easier to harvest once the time comes.
Mint tends to die back during the winter so harvest any leaves you can between spring and mid-autumn. To keep mint plants compact and encourage better growing, harvest regularly.
Mint can often be the subject to rust, a common fungal disease, recognised by orange - black spots blistering on mint leaves. Rust can eventually kill plants if left untreated. To remedy rust problems, remove infected plants to avoid the spreading of spores. Rust can spread to other plants too so be sure to check plants around the infected ones too.
Lemon Verbena should be planted in rich, well drained soil. If roots remain wet constantly, the plant may perish. Lemon verbena may thrive in containers, be sure to choose one large enough to give roots room to spread.
Lemon Verbena leaves can be harvested as needed throughout their growing season. New growth will occur each time you cut a stem. Frequent cutting is necessary for continuous growth, to make a large picking cut the plants back by roughly half. When using the lemon verbena leaves crumble them just before using in order to release their flavours. Try freezing the leaves to use later.
Once you have planted your Aztec sweet herb ensure the soil is well drained. Allow the soil to almost fully dry out around your Lippia Dulcis before watering it again as it prefers drier conditions. These plants will grow quickly, Once it has acclimated to its final position the plant will be hardy that will withstand some level of neglect.
