Keep soil moist, especially when newly planted out; water in particularly dry weather.

Soil should be well-draining and moderately fertile

Will benefit from fertilising in the growing season, and from the addition of natural fertilisers to the soil, especially if you're growing it in a pot.

Yes- no toxicity reported, though it's best for the plant and your pets if they don't nibble too much!

Sprouts Top Tips
Plant into the ground rather than a pot for more buchy and vibrant- and less scraggly- growth.
