|My Peat Pellet herb garden, getting started|
Germination: 7-14 days
Start seeds indoors in colder climates.
Transplant once first true leaves are developed. Give each plant around 8-12" of space once started and thin as needed. Feverfew will readily self-sow after going to seed.
Soil should be well-drained and moderate.
From Seed to Harvest is approximately 85 days.
I'm currently working on a "herbal reading list" for just about anyone interested in growing, eating and using herbs. Stay tuned!
