Eden Gardens is a fan of Mexican Tarragon. This is a powerful herb we began growing in 2018. Like many other herbs at the farm, we've been able to propagate Mexican Tarragon taking cuttings and using our aquaponics system to root them. You can find it growing all over the farm, but especially in the Apothecary Garden.
Reasons we love Mexican Tarragon:
Mexican Tarragon is a perennial in our area. It comes back each Spring and sends vibrant yellow blooms each Fall attracting all kinds of pollinators to the farm.
