Look at the difference in the size of these lemon verbena leaves I harvested yesterday! The ones on the left are from a plant I put into the chook pen and surrounded with wire. The others are from two dainty little plants that live in dainty little pots on my front porch.
Say what you will about pots… plants really prefer to be put into the ground.
These leaves will be dried and used as lemon verbena tea during the winter.
