Product Description

Grow this attractive and versatile herb, known as Mugwort, from freshly harvested Artemisia vulgaris herb seeds. Mugwort is an heirloom herb that originates from much of Europe and Asia. The plants, also commonly known as Common Wormwood or Common Mugwort, will produce attractive green foliage, with clusters of small flowers during the late summer months. These herbs have both medicinal and culinary uses and can be used to flavor dishes and teas as well. The plants will grow to a mature height of roughly 40 to 60 inches tall, and are greatly used as an ornamental plant.

Mugwort herbs are mainly categorized as a perennial herb. Perennials such as this will establish a deep root system, which is  used to maintain growth year after year. When the Winter season arrives, your plant life will begin to wilt on the surface, but the roots will remain alive and dormant until the following growing season.

Sowing The Seed

Mugwort seeds are extremely tiny and are best established in a controlled environment, for transplanting later on. Having said this, the seeds can be started indoors, in peat pots, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost. Scatter the tiny seeds to the surface of the soil, lin groups of 3 to 5 per pot. Leave them uncovered, since they will require direct lighting to germinate properly. Transplant or direct sow outdoors when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed.

Growing Conditions

Mugwort will thrive in an area of partial shade, with temperatures of at least 70F. The soil can be dry and poor, or fertile, just make sure that your sowing area is well drained. To improve drainage, we recommend adding a light compost to areas that contain hard, compact soil. Water the seeds daily, with a mist setting, until germination occurs.

Germination & Growth

Wormwood seeds can take anywhere between 7 to 21 days to successfully germinate. The plants will reach a height of roughly 3 or 4 feet tall, and can spread a good 2 feet wide. They can be spaced about 18 to 24 inches apart from one another. Wormwood has a bush like growth habit, displaying thousands of silver, green leaves. To harvest, simply cut the upper green portions, leaving behind thicker, woody stems for regrowth to occur.
