Special handling

If you live in an area where the ground freezes and thaws often in the winter, mulch after the first freeze so that a thaw will not push the plant up and out of the ground. Mulching also helps the tarragon survive the cold. Subdivide the plants every three or four years.


Tarragon has no serious pest problems. It does well in the organic garden.


Tarragon has no serious disease problems.

When and how to harvest

Time from planting to harvest is about 60 days, and you don't need a lot of tarragon. One plant supplies the average family, so if you're growing a lot you will be able to supply the whole neighborhood. Pick the tender top leaves of tarragon as you need them. Cut back the leafy top growth several times during the season to encourage the plant to bush out.
