    what should I do if the transplant arrives with flower buds? Is it no longer good for planting since it “bolted,” or should I snip the buds off and allow the plant to grow?

      hi! thanks for writing. potted plants that arrive with buds can be planted to gallon pots as recommended, or to the garden. They will continue to mature their buds into flowers, and at that point may be harvested. Another option is to let them go to seed and collect the seeds. If a small transplant is desired for spring planting, order in spring. richo

  2. Question

    rachel (verified owner)

    I tried with a sweet annie transplant last spring and it died, which is why I am wondering if maybe I would have more success if I transplanted one in the late summer/early fall.
    I live in mild southern california in zone 10a – would it be possible to overwinter the plant so that it could start growing quickly in the spring?

      Sorry that happened! We did a test this year where we planted transplants in the spring and also sprinkled seed in the bed at the same time. Our transplants did not die but grew slowly, and the direct-seeded seedlings soon outgrew them, making a better plant in the end. New crop herb will be in stock within a week, we just filled our drying facility with the richly flowered herb 2 days back, and we’re working it down. it is a delight to work with it, and we recommend it. This is an annual, it cannot be fall planted for re-emergence in the spring. richo

      Hi Claudette, The Artemisia annua grows fine in pots. Please understand that this is an annual, so once it flowers, then needs to be harvested, to make use of it, and if not harvested, will eventually expire in the pot. Richo

    Will this plant reseed itself easily before dying? Allowing for it to come back the next year?

      hi melinda, yes, i’ve worked with volunteers on this one from time to time. if you don’t need a whole lot of them, and you don’t need them in a particular row, then this can be an easy way to proceed. r

      Any chance Sweet Annie will reseed with volunteers in Grow Zone(s) 7? Not having much luck finding the answer. While plans are to save seeds, I’m hoping for another prolific grower in this area like my Lemon Balm. Thank you.

      Hi Sue, thanks for contacting. Yes, although the volunteers tend to stay hidden until they size up to the point where they are more noticeable. We have an experiment going this year where we direct-seeded a bed and also transplanted seedlings, to see which method is most productive, and then there are some volunteers off to the side that look. . . better than both! richo
