"Hyssop Officinalis (Or simply ‘Hyssop’ once you get to know it) is one of the most under rated herbs out there.
Why is it so amazing? It’s evergreen, it’s very hardy, it produces gorgeous flowers and it is really, really useful in the kitchen.
The flavour is quite difficult to describe until you have tried it yourself. It is vaguely Minty/Peppery and absolutely amazing when added to meat or soups and stews. It can also be used to make a very strong flavoured herbal tea also.
It will enjoy being planted somewhere sunny and free draining where it will grow away happily. Perfect for a container or raised bed. Prune it back regularly to keep the vigorous growth and prevent the plant from becoming leggy.
It is possible to find pink, blue and white flowering varieties of Hyssop, the blue flowers are my favourite."
