The plant started to flower in November, and this interesting info from the web states that there are approx 6000 seeds for each gram of dried seeds! Can you believe it!
It grows very well during the first few months and even harvested some leaves for my dinner!
These are the leaves which I "harvest" from the plant for a baked chicken, see photo below,
Unfortunately, the plant starts to show signs of wilting after it started to flower,
The flowers of a tarragon plant, yellow in colour and really small
Are these seeds? Further research from the web states that "
That's all the "seeds" collected
I'm not sure whether I did it right. The flowers are still visible although it is dried. It is extremely small, so it is very difficult to see. These may not be the seeds after all. They may just be the dried flowers! The only way to find out is to sow the "seeds" and wait for them to germinate!
This is what's left, I pruned the branches, hoping that it will grow new leaves! I propagate some of the stems when I pruned the plant and keeping my fingers crossed that they will root. If all these three methods fails, then I guess, I just have to pay a visit to Sg. Buloh again!
Does anyone knows about the seeds of tarragon? Would appreciate for more details on this. Funny thing is, a search from the web for a picture of the seeds are fruitless.
There are much for me to learn about growing Tarragon!
