Growing instructions

Perilla frutescens may well be considered a classical window sill culinary herb. Shiso needs light to germinate and should therefore only be lightly pressed into the soil. When they are started indoors, they need a short cold stratification in the freezer, to simulate the winter season. Sow outdoors either in late fall or early spring, before the last frost. Choose nutrient-rich and well-drained soil and keep sufficiently moist, but avoid waterlogging. Perilla thrives in the sun and in partial shade.
