Herb Feverfew Seeds
HOW TO GROW FROM SEEDS
Seeds for growing feverfew herb are readily available in Garden Paradise Seeds. The seeds are very fine and most easily planted in small peat pots filled with damp, loamy soil. Sow in August to September. Sprinkle a few seeds into the pot and tap the bottom of the pot on the counter to settle the seeds into the soil. Spray water to keep the seeds moist as poured water may dislodge the seeds. When placed in a sunny window or under a grow light, you should see signs of the feverfew seeds germinating in about two weeks. When the plants are about 7.5 cm. tall, plant them into a sunny garden spot and water regularly until the roots take hold.
CARE AFTER GERMINATIONIf you choose to grow your feverfew plant somewhere other than an herb garden, the only requirement is that the spot is sunny. Feverfew can self-pollinate and doesn't require help from pollinators. So plant it in full sun, or in an area that gets a bit of light shade. Well-drained sandy or loamy soil with a pH of 6.0 to 6.7 is perfect for these plants. Depending on the climate, feverfew is a biennial or short-lived perennial. When seeds are started early, they will bloom its first year.
