The information on this page is for reference and education.  It is not intended to be a substitute for the advise of a physician.  We do not advocate self diagnosis or self medication.  Be aware that any plant substance used externally or internally may cause an allergic reaction in some people.  We will not be responsible for any problems that arise from using herbs medicinally.


HERB GROWING INSTRUCTIONS:
Start plants indoors in individual 3" diameter pots.   Barely cover seeds with soil and do not water from above, as this will disturb the small herb seeds.  We recommend using a heat propagation mat or heating cables, as herb seeds need a warm growing medium to germinate.   Use an artificial light source (fluorescent light) to get transplants off to a healthy start.  Sow seeds six weeks before last spring frost. About 10 days before last spring frost, start hardening off the plants gradually outside.  A week after last spring frost, transplant plants outdoors or transplant into permanent , larger pots.
