Birdhouse Gourd Seed Pack

Write a review

Some garden for food, others for beauty. But for many centuries, apothecary gardens were one of the most common plots to be found around the home. The perfect herb for making topical ointments for gardeners' achy hands and sore backs, Meadow Arnica is a medicinally interchangeable substitute for Mountain Arnica, which only grows well at high altitudes. Plant this wide-spreading perennial to enjoy the dense green foliage, yellow flowers, and the soothing effect it has on achy muscles. Please note that Meadow Arnica is naturally an erratic germinator; oversow and expect only the minority of seeds to germinate in a timely manner.

Growing Instructions

Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before planting date. Sprinkle a few seeds on the soil surface, agitate and water in gently. Keep soil moist but not wet. Seed can take up to 3 weeks to germinate. The ideal temperature for germination is 55 degrees. Transplant when soil has warmed, in mid- to late spring. Arnica thrives in well drained, poor soil; no need for amendments. Harvest flowers when they appear and dry to use medicinally.
