Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) - 100 Seeds
Valerian is a hardy perennial herb with a history of medicinal use dating back to the 16th century. It is native to Europe and Asia, so it thrives in cooler climates. The Valerian herb is also called All Heal and Garden Heliotrope. Valerian plants are attractive additions to the garden, and cats love them too!

Plant Valerian seeds directly outdoors in the spring. Lightly cover the herb seeds with soil and keep moist. The Valerian seedlings are fairly frost tolerant. Start with a prepared seedbed that is weed free and has organic matter worked in. The location should be in full sun to partial shade. Valerian herb plants prefer moist conditions, so provide the equivalent of 1 to 2 inches of rainfall each week. The plant will need nitrogen throughout the growing season. If you are growing Valerian herb plants for the root, cut the flower stalks when they appear. This will direct energy to the roots. Wait until the second year to harvest and dry the roots. Valerian will self-sow. Cut the spent flower heads to prevent re-seeding.
