Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. The seed remains viable for 2 - 3 years in normal storage

We have very little information on this species and do not know if it will succeed in Britain. It is hardy to at least -7°c in Australian gardens
though this cannot be translated directly to British gardens due to our cooler summers and longer colder and wetter winters. It is a very aromatic plant
that is worth trying out in the milder areas of the country. The following notes are based on the general needs of the genus.
Requires a sunny position in a well drained soil and does not thrive on shallow chalky soils.
A short-lived plant, but it can be grafted onto the roots of Westringia fruticosa which allows them to be grown in less favourable conditions and also probably increases their life span
