Planting & Care
Sow them indoors in early spring in a seed tray using well draining starting mix. Scatter the seeds over the surface of soil and lightly tamp them. Cover the tray with plastic sheet or put in a plastic bag and keep that in a bright spot.
If you want to sow seeds directly on the ground wait until the temperature warms up around 60 F (15 C) and last frost date passes away in the spring. Keep the soil evenly moist until the germination. Germination occurs within one or two weeks after seed sowing.

Sunlight: Full sun

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: -20F (-29C)

Fertilizer: apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • Growing feverfew doesn’t 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.


Special Feature:
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.

  • Feverfew is used to treat a wide range of health problems, such as fever, cold, rheumatism and cramps.
