HARVESTING
Pick leaves when they are young and fresh, use straight away or freeze.
Let the plant send up long stalks carrying dainty white flowers, followed by peppercorn size seeds for self seeding.
Pick when ripe, just before they start to fall to the ground. Cut the entire stem and allow to dry on paper.
When fully dry, store in airtight containers can be used whole or ground up with a pestel and mortar.
