HOW TO GROW FROM SEEDS HERB RUE RUTA
CARE FOR GERMINATION
When it comes to triggering germination, 68°F is the sweet spot. In most cases, germination takes place in seven to twenty days. Seeds should be kept moist until they germinate, and seedlings and transplants should also be kept moist until they've developed roots. Watering Rue plants at the bottom or with intermittent drip irrigation is best. After the indoor seedlings reach a size where they can be handled, transplant them into pots and grow them. After the last frost is expected, plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer. It would be ideal if the position is in full sun, with fertile soil that is not too wet. Allow 30 cm between objects.
CARE AFTER GERMINATION
It is important to water regularly, but do not drown the soil. It requires little maintenance to grow rue. It can be pruned back to just above its woody base in spring, or in fall after it has finished flowering. You should deadhead rue blooms since they reseed themselves. The trimmed bases of rue plants need to be mulched in areas where it is colder in winter to keep it from freezing. The yellow flowers of this evergreen bush are highly aromatic. Leafy greens can be added to sandwiches and salads when finely chopped.
