Grow a garden filled with the heirloom herb Wormwood, from freshly harvested Artemisia absinthium seeds. Wormwood is an ancient heirloom that dates back to Egyptian times. Mainly used as a medicinal herb to rid the body of worms, Wormwood also serves to aid in digestion and to stimulate the digestive system as well. These plants also have insect repelling properties to keep moths away and to act as a natural pesticide. The plants themselves will reach a mature height of roughly 36 to 48 inches tall, and can spread a good 2 feet wide. The attractive plants can also act as an ornamental, displaying silver green leaves throughout the Spring and summer seasons.


Wormwood herbs are mainly categorized as a perennial herb. Perennials such as this will establish a deep root system, which it can use 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.


Wormwood is a great herb to grow in the herb garden, but you will want to take caution when growing it around other medicinal and culinary herbs. These plants are known to release a chemical, known as "absinthin," which can be toxic to other plants in the garden. Many gardeners choose to grow wormwood herbs in large pots and containers, as to keep the plants from harming other herbs in the herb garden.

SOWING THE SEED

Wormwood 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, in 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

Wormwood 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.
