Grows really well in a sheltered sunny spot. Gets quite big so keep cutting it and eating it! Give cuttings to your friends using ground cinnamon as a rooting compound – what a cool idea!!!

Calms your nerves, aids digestion, settles an upset stomach. Can help with memory loss, anti-depressant and anti-anxiety properties. Oh and it can be used to detox for a drugs test 😆
