I am making a calendar for my potting shed wall., from your website, thank you for that. Just a quick question, you have French Taragon, plant out seedlings from Sept to Jan, however, there is no instructions for Sowing Seed. I am assuming it would be sow seed August, then Sept sow seed and plant out etc etc. Have i guessed correctly? Thank you Wendy Strathearn

Hi Wendy, The catch with French tarragon is that it doesn't produce many seeds and 'Tarragon' seeds sold commercially will almost certainly be Russian tarragon. If you are lucky enough to have genuine French tarragon seeds, then your plan for growing them is suitable.
