Sow seeds indoors 1⁄8 inch deep. Plant outside when plants are 3 inches tall. Prefers full sun and well-drained, rich soil. The plant can also be grown in containers.
In late summer harvest plants at the peak of their bloom or just before they are in full flower. Cut the stems with flower heads attached and dry in a cool airy place, with cheesecloth underneath, or paper bag attached, to catch the leaves that fall. When the leaves and flowers are dry, remove from stems and store in airtight containers.
