Description

Sneezewort (Achillea ptarmica)

Sneezewort, also known as Pepper Girse (pepper grass) and Moleery Tea, is a plant of damp, open areas. This perennial wildflower has clusters of small, white, daisy-like flowers and thin, scallop-edged leaves. Its traditional medicinal and occasional culinary uses relate to its peppery qualities. 30cm.

Sowing: Can be sown at any time of year, but best in early autumn or in spring. Sow in trays or pots of moist compost and transplant to an open site that does not dry out or scatter the seed directly onto a fine-raked seed bed in a damp area and firm down well. Water well and keep the young plants weeded.

500-800 seeds per packet.
