Self-Heal (Prunella vulgaris), seed packet, organic
Family: Mint (Lamiaceae)
Hardy to Zones 3 to 9 (Heal-All, Heart-of-the-Earth, Self Heal) Creeping herbaceous perennial, native to Europe. In the garden or among the grasses on the lawn, a floral focal point or a surprising splash of color that gladdens the heart. Traditional usage (TWM): astringent, analgesic, antiviral, open sores of the oral mucosa, herpes. The flowers are most useful. Pick at full flowering glory and dry in the shade, then set aside for making tea. The plant prefers full sun to shade and moist soils. If you bump them up with organic compost, they can be highly florific and stunning, otherwise a small demure blinking blue eye in the grasses. Sow seed in early spring or cold-condition in moist medium in the refrigerator (not the freezer) for a week or two before sowing in warm soil. Really a very easy plant to start and to grow. Flowers purple from 6 inches to 18 inches, depending on how much compost is used and how much competition is experienced from grasses.
Packet contains 50 seeds
