Artemisia absinthium plant - usage

The plant arrives in a small encased pot of soil with sufficient nutrients to survive for 3 weeks without water, though we recommend watering and replanting immediately upon arrival. Plant it outside in a garden or in a larger pot on your balcony. The ideal time for planting outside is between late spring / early summer, though it can also be grown indoors all year round.
