Wormwood
Wormwood

  • Price: $7.00

A shrubby perennial growing to 4 feet with tiny yellow flowerheads. Plant the herb in partial shade. It can tolerate some direct sun, but thrives in an area which receives only a few hours of direct sun each day. During the hot dry weather, keep the soil most. Water once a week or more as the soil dries out. Give wormwood a separate space in the garden. A chemical in wormwood, absinthin, can be toxic to other plants. For this reason, grow it several feet away from other plants and do not plant other plants where you had wormwood the previous season.

Comments Warnings : Wormwood is mostly used today for companion planting. Although it was used up to 19th century for many different disorders, it was declared unsafe by the US Food and Drug Administration. Do not take if you are pregnant, think you may be pregnant, or plan pregnancy in the near future. The dangers outweigh any benefits. See Link PFAF.
