Feverfew is a perennial plant with small, daisy-like flowers that are cultivated in flower gardens throughout Europe and the US. It is known to repel moths, flies, ants, mosquitoes, cockroaches, and more insects! Tanacetum parthenium, 80-90 days to maturity. 1 gram (approx. 7,600 seeds per gram)
Feverfew flowers from June through August and requires full or partial sun. Feverfew leaves can be harvested at any time during the season, and flowers can be harvested as soon as they start to bloom. Essential oils in the plant are highest as flowering is beginning. To harvest, dry leaves and flowers on a low setting in a dehydrator, or hang the stems in a dark space, upside down for several days. Once dried, removed the dried flowers and leaves from the stem and store them in a tightly sealed jar in a dark space.
