Caring for Feverfew

    Growing feverfew doesnt require fertilizer, if soil is rich in organic matter. However, you can apply a fertilizer you use for other flowers monthly.

    Feverfew plants are grown as perennial and annual. Annual varieties die off in the winter and then germinate again in the spring. Feverfews are sensitive to extreme cold and need special care in winter time.

    Do protect mulching to protect the plant from severe cold in winters. Mulching also helps in summers in conserving moisture.

    Deadhead the faded flowers and slightly prune off the plant after the first flowering. Pruning stimulates the growth of new flowers. Prune long, leggy and diseased branches with discolored leaves. You can prune off the plant up to about one-third of its size.

Typical uses of Feverfew

Special features: Beds of mint or other tea plants where insects are not wanted. Feverfew repels insects of all nature, so it is a good plant to grow near entryways.

Culinary use: The flowers, stems and leaves

Ornamental use: It is also occasionally grown for ornament.

Medicinal use: Feverfew is used to treat a wide range of health problems, such as fever, cold, rheumatism and cramps. It is also widely used to treat migraines.
It is a traditional medicinal herb which is commonly used to prevent migraine headaches,
