Seed not available for 2017

Description: Well-known for its medicinal properties, this pungent flowering herb is said to provide relief for sufferers of migraines and arthritis. Its small, daisy-like flowers are lovely and can be used in flower arrangements. Self-seeds, but not aggressively.

Pack Size: 500 seeds

Latin Name: Tanacetum parthenium
Main Uses: Medicinal
Zone Hardiness: Zone 5 (but often reseeds in zone 3)
Exposure: Full sun
Height: 45 cm (18 inches)
Flower Color: Yellow and white
Flowering Time: Summer

Germination Instructions: Sow seeds outdoors early in spring when ground has warmed, or start indoors 4-6 weeks before planting out date. The small seeds can be gently scattered onto moistened soil, then covered with a light layer to keep them in place. For best results, apply Sea Magic™ kelp from first watering. Apply a seedling-starter fertilizer such as Evolve Seedling once the second set of true leaves has appeared, and then alternate between the kelp and seedling starter until transplant. Prefers rich well-drained soil and a sheltered location out of the wind. Will readily volunteer each year from dropped seeds.

Harvesting: Harvest flowering tops when full open

Growing in Containers: Well-suited to larger pots (12 inches and up)

Watering (Containers): Water deeply when top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Check every day or two during very hot weather.

Growing in Mixed Planters: Well-suited for larger mixed planters. Think square-foot gardening!

Suitability for Indoors: Can be grown indoors under lights.

Exposure: Full sun.

What about Grow Lights? T5 or 26 - 54w CFL full-spectrum lights are ideal

General Indoor Care: Because Feverfew is a botanical perennial, it may get scruffy through the winter indoors. Do not be shy to cut established plants back by 50% or more to encourage strong re-growth.

Indoor Container Suggestions: Minimum 6" pots.

Winter Fertilizing: Fertilize monthly through winter with an organic plant food.

Winter Watering: Water deeply when soil feels dry to the touch.
