French tarragon - some questions.........

dancinglemons(7B VA)October 10, 2011

Hello all,

I have a French tarragon plant that is 3 years old and was beautiful until about a month ago. It started turning brown. It still puts out green shoots but about 75% of the plant is brown and crunchy. I read on the web in 2 articles that tarragon will turn brown in mid-season (???) and if cut back it will green up again.

Anyone heard of this?? I usually leave the plant outside over winter but want to try to 'save' this plant - any ideas??

Why don't you tell us more about what sort and size of pot the plant is growing in (if it's not in the ground), whether it's been repotted or divided, whether it's rootbound now, how you've watered and fertilized it, and what conditions it gets during the growing season as well as the winter.
