How to sow and care for Herb Feverfew Seeds
Purchasing quality feverfew seeds from PLANT-MY-SEEDS will help you grow this herb quickly. Since the seeds are so fine, it is easiest to plant them in small pots filled with moist, loamy soil. The best time to sow is between August and September. Sprinkle some seeds into the pot and tap the bottom of the pot on the counter to settle them into the soil. Feverfew seeds may need to be sprayed with water to prevent them from drying out. The seeds will germinate in about two weeks in a sunny window or under a grow light. Around the time the plants reach 7.5 cm tall. Plant the roots in a bright spot in your garden once they have taken hold.
The only requirement for growing feverfew anywhere other than a herb garden is that it be sunny. Feverfew can self-pollinate, so pollinators are not necessary. A sunny area or a spot with some light shade is ideal for planting it. Sandy or loamy soil with a pH level between 6 and 6.7 is ideal for feverfew's growth. According to its climate, feverfew can grow biennially or as a short-lived perennial. The seeds will bloom in their first year if they are planted in the spring.
