Has anyone had any luck growing Perilla Frutescens or Shiso as it's more commonly known?
I'll be in the good books with my Japanese wife for years to come if I can get a good plant established!

Considering they are planted in a pot on my balcony I don't think will be much of a problem. don't think theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll get much of a chance to toughen up either with the wife knocking them back like gum drops. For a supposed weed they sure seem to be taking an awfully long time to germinateÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Ã¢â‚¬Â¦applestar wrote:They grow like weed. They're better somewhat shaded so the leaves don't toughen up, but are extremely drought tolerant, and will re-seed (boy do they re-seed!) every year, so let some GO TO SEED, and pick your location wisely.
