Wormwood, organic seeds

Eco Heirloom


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. 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. A portion contains about 1000 seeds.

Cultivation advice


Wormwood is sown directly or pre-cultivated.


Keep 30-50cm between the plants!


Traditionally harvest should be done  on St. Bartholomew's Day, August 24th. But any time during the summer will do. It is likely more bitter early on.
