You will receive 250 Healthy Seeds of Syrian Rue. For the best result sow the seeds of Rue Peganum Harmala late spring in a greenhouse. The Pergamum harmala seeds germinate fairly reliably by scattering them thinly over the surface of normal, moist seed mix and tamping them in. Keep in a little bit of filtered sun and maintain moisture. The temperature should be kept warm. Let them stay put for a while, even if crowded since disturbing young seedlings can be fatal. Remember that Syrian Rue likes a well-drained not too damp and not the too rich medium. The seed flat must be kept in the dark for the seeds to germinate. The temperature should be about 21 degrees Celsius, which is 70 degrees Fahrenheit.


Do not overwater, especially when the plants are dormant. Plant out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer. Syrian Rue needs full sun and a well-drained to dry, poor soil. If you are growing it too wet, the roots will die causing the top to go limp and die because the remaining roots can’t keep up with evaporation. If you are growing the plant too rich, the growth will be too lush and soft and become very susceptible to fungus infection and bug damage. If you grow the plant in too low light, it will produce thin stretched-out soft growth that gets knocked over by any wind and also dries out too quickly during droughts.


The perennial shrub reaches a height of about 1 meter, the flowers appear from April to May. As an herb Syrian Rue has a lot of health benefits. People take Syrian Rue by mouth to terminate the pregnancy and for the absence of a monthly menstrual period, cancer, depression, diabetes, painful menstruation, hypothermia, insomnia, pain, parasites, Parkinson's disease, and a joint disorder called rheumatoid arthritis. The Seeds will continue to spontaneously sprout even years later from the sowing mix.
