Horehound, White (Marrubium vulgare) - 50 Seeds

$1.85
Did you eat Horehound candy when you were a child? You may not have known it, but candy made from the herb Horehound was often given as a cough drop. You can grow Horehound seeds and use the perennial herb plants in your own soothing teas, or if you are adventurous, in your own homemade candy. Marrubium Vulgare Horehound can be established from herb seeds and harvested the first year. This woody perennial has hairy stems covered with 2-inch, toothed, downy, gray-green leaves. The leaves have a wooly crinkled appearance. Small, off-white hairy flowers are born in summer (often start out as lilac or pale lilac) on the 8 - 24 inch tall and wide plant. The flowers attract beneficial wasps and flies to the garden. It's a great companion plant for tomatoes and peppers as an added bonus.

Planting Instructions:
Choose a location that has a good southern exposure, with dry and poor soil. They are best sown 3 weeks before your last frost. Plant 2-3 seeds per plant, 1/4" deep with 10" spacing between plants and do not over water the Horehound plant. It likes to dry out in-between watering. Like many other seeds, Horehound seeds are dormant which will need to be broken through cold stratification. Here is a video illustrating the process..
