Last winter I killed all my tarragon. French, does not make seeds, you
need a division or sprig.
Ever since I got it started, I've been foisting splits off on people -
tarragon likes to be dug up and split every 2-3 years at least, so this
is easy to do. I contacted one of the folks I'd given a piece years ago,
- nope - enjoyed it for a few years and then it fizzled out (I explained
about it needing splitting it regularly, but I guess that didn't
process.) So much for that. Various other people had moved, etc. I
thought it was gone for good.
But, last year I had given the saddest little tarragon in the garden to
someone, not expecting much but hoping for the best. Evidently it got
happy there. So last night I got two stalks with roots off it that were
bigger than the whole plant had been when given away, trimmed them and
plunked them in the garden, and stuck 27 sprigs in rooting medium under
I'll keep a few more in more different places around the garden, NOT
mulch them so deep (what appeared to do them in last year) and I'll keep
giving the stuff away to as many folks as possible.

Please don't feed the trolls. Killfile and ignore them so they will go away.
