Growing Herbs in Greece
Answered by: Richters Staff
Question from: Nicolas Chrissakis
Posted: Before April 1998

I would like to buy the following herbs: fo-ti, gotu kola, ginkgo biloba; and I would like to know if they will grow in Greece.

The climate here in Greece is mild winter (never below freezing) and dry summers. For the mention herbs what are the requirements as far temperature, location of plantation, water, shade, type of water etc.

These three herbs should grow well in Greece. Gotu kola needs plenty of moisture and some protection from the strong sun. Both fo-ti and ginkgo may also need supplementary water during the dry season. Fo-ti can tolerate some shade, but ginkgo grows best in full sun.
