Vetiver Spain: March is the best time of the year to plant Vetiver. After planting Vetiver for almost 10 years now we know that the best results are when Spring comes around. This way Vetiver has a full spring and summer to absorb the heat of the summer. This plant is indigenous to India and loves the heat.
Vetiver Spain has prepared an article on “When is the best time to plant Vetiver?”
