  • Easy, economical way to grow and sell this attractive, highly fragrant groundcover or small potted plant. 
  • Each multi-seed pellet contains 8 to 12 seeds – one plug in a 4-in./10-cm pot delivers a nice fast fill. Can be direct sown. 
  • Eliminates dividing, rooting cuttings and broadcasting seed.
