Grow Herbs - Plant Mexican Tarragon Seeds

Mexican Tarragon is a wonderful addition to any herb garden, as it blooms in the summer and fall when all other herbs are waning. These flowers are purely ornamental, while the glossy leaves are licorice scented and flavored. In warm climates it is a good substitute for French Tarragon, which often withers in heat, as it has a flavor quite similar to Tarragon, with a touch of anise. Treated like an annual in cold winter regions, Mexican Tarragon is a perennial in warmer zones where it may die down and then sprout back in spring.

How to Grow Mexican Tarragon

When to Plant Tarragon Seeds

Sow Mexican Tarragon seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost of the season or sow directly outdoors when soil temperatures reach 70 to 75°F.

Where to Plant Tarragon Seeds

Plant Mexican Tarragon in loamy to sandy soils that are well draining. Mexican Tarragon thrives in full sun (6-8 hours of sun per day). Unlike its Russian and French counterpart, Mexican Tarragon is substantially more tolerant of drought, heat, and humidity and will do better in environments prone to those conditions. Do not plant in areas where the garden is frequently watered.

How to Plant Tarragon Seeds

When planting outdoors, scatter Tarragon seeds lightly over the soil and do not bury them deeper than 1/8th of an inch; Tarragon requires sunlight to germinate seeds. As seedlings begin to grow in size, thin them out until each plant is 12-18 inches apart. When transplanting from indoors, be sure to harden seedlings for 7-10 days before placing in the garden.

How to Harvest Tarragon

Leaves can be harvested in the summertime or sprigs can be cut from the woody parts of the plant. Store both the leaves and stalks in water or freeze to keep them preserved for longer.
