Herb Feverfew Seeds
HOW TO GROW FROM SEEDS HERB FEVERFEW
You can easily grow feverfew herb by purchasing seeds from Garden Paradise Seeds. It is easiest to plant the seeds in small pots filled with damp, loamy soil because the seeds are very fine. August to September are the best months to sow. To settle the seeds into the soil, sprinkle a few seeds into the pot and tap the bottom of the pot on the counter. You may need to spray water onto the seed to prevent the seeds from drying out. Poured water may cause the seeds to move. In about two weeks, feverfew seeds should germinate in a sunny window or under a grow light. Approximately when the plants reach 7.5 cm. Once the roots have taken hold, plant them in a sunny spot in your garden.
CARE AFTER GERMINATION
The only requirement for growing feverfew somewhere other than an herb garden is that the spot is sunny. Pollinators are not needed to pollinate feverfew, which can self-pollinate. It should be planted in a place that gets full sun or a bit of light shade. Plants grow best in sandy or loamy soil with pH levels between 6.0 and 6.7. According to climate, feverfew is either a biennial or a short-lived perennial. The seeds will bloom in their first year when they are started early.
