Wild Bergamot Planting Instructions:
Start seeds indoors 8 to 10 weeks before the last frost or direct sow outdoors 1 to 2 weeks before the last frost. You may also direct-sow in October. The optimal soil temperature for seed germination is 60-70°F. Wild Bergamot does best in full sun, but can also thrive in partial shade. Plant seeds ¼ to ½" deep and barely cover with topsoil. Thin or space the plants to 18 to 24" apart. Bergamot is a hardy perennial that will grow closer together over time.

Wild Bergamot Harvesting Instructions:
As desired, harvest leaves for fresh use in the kitchen. To dry leaves, harvest them before the flowers open. Both fresh and dried leaves can be used in tea. As soon as the flowers are fully open, cut them for drying. Masses of tiered pink-purple blossoms will grow between August and the first frost.
