Wormwood, organic seeds
Artemisia absinthium belongs to the composite family and has small yellow flowers. It is originally from the dry areas around the Mediterranean and the Middle East and has been spread to large parts of the world, many sorts and variants. Since ancient times it has been a well-known medicinal and witchcraft plant. It is perennial but must be covered to winter over safely in the North. Keep 30-50cm between the plants! It is sown directly or pre-cultivated. Wormwood develops its aroma best if grown on light limy soil. It stimulates digestion, flavours spirits and liqueur and repels insects. 10 000 seeds/g, one portion yields 1000 seedlings. A portion contains about 2000 seeds.
