Color: white,
Bloom time: June-September

Planting & Care
The horehound herb plant can be planted from seed, cuttings and division. Plant the seed three weeks before your last expected frost date. The seeds are surface sown and covered with a dusting of soil to prevent the wind from taking them.When planning how to plant horehound remember the germination difficulties of the seed.
Even moisture is important to encourage sprouting which is erratic. Seedlings are thinned to 10 inches apart and you can harvest the leaves after the plant flowers.

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 65F

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • Horehound is grown in full sun and well drained soil.
  • The plant’s other requirements are minimal as it can spring up naturally in nutrient deficient areas and sandy soils.
  • Horehound produces a burr-like seed pod which contains tiny seeds.
  • The seeds are slow to germinate and do not need to be sown deeply.
  • Prior to seeding the horehound plant cultivate the soil and rake it to remove roots, rocks and debris.


Special Feature:
An essential oil is obtained from the plant and used as a flavouring in liqueurs[46]. The plant has been used as a cure for cankerworm in trees[238]. No more details are given but it is probably a strong infusion of the flowering shoots, or the essential oil, that is used[K]. The growing plant repels flies.
