How to harvest

Gather as needed by clipping stems all the way to the ground.

Divide plants when they start to outgrow their pots, about once a year. Dump the entire plant out, cut it into sections with a sharp knife or shovel, then replant the sections in fresh soil. You can give away the extra plants to friends.
