Cyprus calling, Cyprus calling…

A big cheers to Haji Mike out of the lovely island of Cyprus for getting in touch and for sending us a pic of his Lemon Verbena bush. He writes “It’s in a shady place so the sun doesn’t get to it much in the summer and in the winter it gets some protection from the cold winds off the mountains” but looking at it now it’s looking great! Mike also mentioned a lot of people locally call it Mexican Oregano. Has anyone heard it called that before?

Anyway it’s a great smelling shrub and makes a refreshing tea, what more do you want out of a plant, get yourself a pot of it! Thanks again for the tip Mike.

  1. Since this post went out we heard from Tina in Germany who mentioned that Lemon Verbena doesn’t like the frost and Mike also added “no matter how much you prune Lemon Verbena..it always grows back quickly.”
