| FEVERFEW SEEDS | (Tanacetum parthenium):

➸ Feverfew is a must-have for any herb gardener. A lovely ornamental herb, but it has medicinal value as well. Chrysanthemum Parthenium, Feverfew is easily grown from seeds. It is a hardy perennial with deeply cut leaves and lovely daisy-like blooms that measure 3/4 inch across. It is native to Southern Europe, but today it can be found in many areas of the world.

➸ Feverfew will thrive in the poorest soils. It prefers a position in full sun as the plant sometimes is susceptible to mildew in the shade. Feverfew roots prefer not to be waterlogged, so soil that drains wells is a must. Propagation of the Feverfew plant can be both from herb seeds or by root division. Feverfew flowers are nice for cutting and may be dried face down on a flat surface and used in tea or potpourri.

➸ Feverfew is a medicinal herb with a long history of use. The leaves are dried and used as an herbal remedy for migraine headaches. The Feverfew herb contains parthenolide which may help relieve mild spasms and is an anti-inflammatory. Some people take it to relieve the pain of rheumatoid arthritis.

LISTING: Listing for 100 seeds. Organically grown and harvested from my farm.

GROWING DIRECTIONS: Feverfew seeds can be started indoors 4 - 6 weeks before the last frost is expected and transplanted outdoors in the garden. Or, for areas with a long growing season, after frost danger has passed, prepare a seedbed and directly plant the herb seeds outdoors. The Feverfew plants should be spaced about 24 inches apart.

Feverfew can be used to repel insects; like other chrysanthemum relatives, feverfew produces pyrethrin, a natural insecticidal compound but it repels bees, and for this reason feverfew should not be grown in close proximity to plants that rely on bees for pollination, such as fruit trees.

    This is an excellent Goldenrod tincture. Others haven’t had a flavor as nice as this and I’ve taken Goldenrod on and off for years. I take it for allergies and other types of inflammation. It certainly helps. I still have to keep allergy pills stocked for severe reactions but I’m able to cut down on them which is wonderful.

    This makes the most delicious iced tea. It’s very fresh and tastes better than anything I’ve found at the organic grocery stores! Sometimes I add hibiscus or rose hips, lemon or orange, raw honey. Thanks Janine! I really appreciate this.
