Wood Betony Seeds
Wood Betony - Stachys officinalis
Family: Mint (Lamiaceae)
Hardy to Zones 5 to 10
Start seeds indoors or direct seed once danger of frost has passed. Barely cover seed and keep evenly moist until germination, which occurs in 1 to 3 weeks.
In its first year, wood betony forms a lush rosette and begins flowering in its second year. Its pink/purple flowers can grow up to 3 feet tall.
A wonderful, low dose herb that can help us feed grounded, centered and connected. Nice as a tea or tincture.
Wood betony prefers rich soils and lots of water.
Each packet contains approximately 50 seeds harvested from my garden in 2018.
