USDA Hardiness Zone:
Not the most common culinary herb, tarragon deserves more respect in any cook's garden. Used in finer cooking, tarragon pairs well with fish, egg and chicken dishes. Its slightly anise tasting leaves are strong, use a small amount and adjust for taste preference.
Tarragon grows very well in hot, dry soils. It thrives in containers, as they are often on the dry side, and windowsill gardens that receive plenty of sunlight. It must be divided every two to three years.
Try growing a plant or two this year, tarragon will surely win you over and soon you will be finding new ways to incorporate this fragrant herb into your everyday cooking.
