Common Problems

1. Why is my herb dying?
Always look for the early signs of any insect/fungal/ any other infections. Spay appropriate fungicides or pesticides as soon as any symptoms of such diseases are spotted. Watch out for snails and slugs.

2. Why is my herb not growing?
Herbs are cool season plants. They struggle to grow in hot climatic situations. Also waterlogging in the soil is also harmful to plants. Use well drained potting soil for growing your herbs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Tarragon a strong herb?

Tarragon is a powerful herb, and it should be used in moderation. If you put in too much, it can be overwhelming. I only use it fresh. Most herbs are stronger when dried, but tarragon loses an essential oil and tends to fade out of the picture.

What can I do with a lot of tarragon?

Stick with tender herbs like parsley, cilantro, chervil, tarragon, mint, and dill—save the woodier herbs, like sage and rosemary, for cooking. Rinse them clean, pat dry, then pull the leaves from the stems and add them, whole, to any salad. The big pieces of herb add a fresh note to greens, much like citrus zest.

Is Tarragon good for acid reflux?

You can also add flavor to foods with herbs such as ground cinnamon, basil, dill, parsley, thyme, and tarragon, which don't usually cause acid reflux symptoms.
