How to Grow:

When growing Hyssop, the seeds should be sowed at the start of spring before the last frost. It is best to lightly cover the Hyssop sees once sown. Hyssop like to grow in a part of the garden that is either sunny or as part shade. Ideally the soil should be light and of a dry nature.
If you plan to first grow Hyssop indoors then they should be started about ten weeks before they are due to be put out in the garden in spring. It will take from two to seven weeks for the seeds to germinate at a temperature of 15 to 21 degrees centigrade. Once ready transplant the Hyssop seedlings about 45 to 90cm apart.
