My Lemon Verbena got off to a pretty shaky start, but looks like it is on the mend.
I ordered it from Diggers at the same time as ordering the Blood Orange and Limequat. We had a pretty bad storm the week that it arrived and all of the 5 leaves that were on the little stick got blown off.
I was a bit worried as i had read that they can be temperamental, but it started re-shooting almost immediately!
The smell of the leaves is intoxicating – i love most ‘lemon scented’ things, but this has got to be my favourite!
The aim is to extract some ‘essential oil’ from the leaves if i can get it to grow big enough
