Customer Tips & Reviews Allspice
I was given this and did not know what it was for years. Flowered (small, cream flowers in clusters) prolifically after I cut it back severely. I grow it for the clove-scented leaves rather than the purple-black berries.

It is still small, growing in a pot in full sun. It gets on well with the other plants in the pot, Winter Tarragon, French Tarragon and Thyme.The leaves are used in cooking, no idea if the plant is male or female and we only have one.
FERNTREE GULLY, VIC, Australia
Bought off ebay as seedling not long ago. In a pot under front verander which gets the afternoon sun (west facing). So far doing well.
I crush the leaves and make a powder out of them.
