Care Guide

Excellent pest and disease resistance

Hyssop is resistant to pests and diseases. In fact, many people grow it as a companion plant to help repel cabbage months and flea beetles. The few diseases that attack hyssop are all related to the plant growing in conditions that are too moist.MORE

Water sparingly

Native to cool, high elevations, Hyssop tolerates drought conditions well. Care should be taken not to overwater. Allow the soil to completely dry out between watering.MORE

Full Sun

Plant in a position where the plants will receive around 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day.MORE

Any well drained soil

Hyssop needs well-drained soil with lots of well-rotted compost. If you have clay soil, add some sand to loosen up it up. Hyssop does well in rocky soil as long as there is adequate drainage. Hyssop grows in a wide range of pH levels but seems to prefer 6.5 _x0096_ 7.0.MORE

Feeding not required

No feeding needed.MORE

Light pruning

Prune after flowering to maintain the plant's shape.MORE
