                                    French tarragon is the variety generally considered best for the kitchen, but is never grown from seed because the flowers are sterile. The seed raised plants of Russian tarragon are not as strong, but are more hardy and vigorous growing plants. They can produce shoots from the roots and grow over a meter tall. The plants prefer poor soils low in nitrogen and are tolerant of drought and neglect. Artemisia dracunculus 'Russian Tarragon' produces many more leaves that are mild and good in salads and cooked food. Best used fresh since the flavor does not remain long when stored.

Mixes well with grasses and plants readily reseed. Birds and butterflies also like this plant: the butterflies for the flowers and the birds for the seeds. Long blooming period from May to August, plants are more or less annuals but self seed. Coreopsis grow best in any fertile, garden soil that is well drained and has a full exposure to the sun. Sow indoors at 70-degree temperature, 4 to 6 weeks before it is safe to plant outside. Seeds may also be sown directly where they are to grow when the soil is warm, cover lightly. Good subjects for large pots and cut flowers for small diplays. The attracrtive lacy foliage and large dark flowers mix well with other large pot plants. Give them a hair cut to promote shorter and bushy plants.
