Tarragon is considered a nurse plant, meaning that its presence in the garden will enhance the flavour and increase the growth of anything it is planted next to. You literally can’t go wrong with planting tarragon in any place in your garden. It also acts as a barrier plant by repelling insects. 

Note: Tarragon needs space to allow air to circulate so be cautious not to plant to compact next to other plants.
