Tarragon - Seeds
Common name: French tarragon
Bloom time: Rarely flowers
Height: 1.50 to 3.00 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow
Planting & Care
Loosen the soil to a depth of 12 to 15 inches. The deep planting encourages the developing stem to send out roots to help stabilize the plant and perhaps eliminate the need for staking. Also, deep planting keeps plant bulbs cool when temperatures soar.
Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade
Soil: well-drained soil
Water: Dry to medium
Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer
- You can’t grow French tarragon from seeds.
- You must purchase the plants or take an established plant from a friend’s garden.
- Get the transplants in the spring or fall.
- Before winter, add 4 to 6 inches of mulch, simply to delay the ground freeze and allow the roots to keep growing.
- Leave the mulch until spring once the last hard frost has passed.
Plant the transplants in well-drained soil about 2 to 3 feet apart in order to give each plant room to grow. A full-grown plant should cover about 12 inches of soil. The plants should grow to around 2 or 3 feet in height.
Susceptible to root rot in moist soils, particularly poorly drained ones. French tarragon does not always survive St. Louis winters, and wet soils in winter is a common cause of plant demise.
