Feverfew is a small daisy-like plant that has often been used as a medicinal herb. This delicate plant has a slightly bitter taste and can be brewed into a herb tea that is said to help with migraines. The flowers are edible and can be added to a salad to bring an unusual element to your dish. It is also a beautiful plant to have in your garden as the daisy flowers bring a spring feel to any space.

How to grow feverfew at home

Plant your feverfew in a week-draining soil that receives sun throughout the day. Water the plant well to keep the soil moist, but not wet. Weed around the plant regularly to ensure there is no competition that may kill the plant. You can plant your feverfew in a container, window box or garden bed.

How do you harvest feverfew?

When the plant has produced flowers, you can harvest it as you need. To harvest, simply pick the flowers you need just before use.

What are plug plants?

Plug plants are very young plants that come ready to go in the ground. They are grown in single units in modular trays and be either seedlings or cuttings. Buying plug plants lets you fill your beds and borders easily, and in a way that is stress-free for your plant since it allows for little root disturbance.

How do you plant a plug plant?

When you first get your plant home, remove any packaging except for the pot. Place the plant in a warm and sunny space for 2-4 hours to let them recover and acclimatise. You should try to plant your plug the same day if you can. To do this, dig a hole in your desired place that is slightly larger than the root ball and soil around it and put the plug inside. Cover with the existing earth and press down lightly. Water well for the first week to help the plant establish itself and feed with an all-purpose feed after 3 weeks.
