French Tarragon problems

garystpaul(4)September 1, 2012

Hi, folks. I have several Fr. tarragon plants in a bed and several of them have developed dry, crinkly brown leaves a few inches at the bottom of the strems (one is flourishing and doesn't seem to have that problem). Is this common? I'm not sure what I could be doing wrong, especially with one that in such better shape. I try not to over- or under-water. Appreciate any thoughts on this.

I see this on my tarragon as well. It seems to be more common once the summer gets hot. It hasn't permanently damaged the plant - the tops remain green and healthy and the plant has always come back with good vigor in the spring.
