  1. Question

    Cynthia (verified owner)

    I just got my plants! I’m in panhandle Florida on the north side of a big watershed area that goes down to a creek that runs into a river about a mile and half from our location. I have two areas to think about that might serve for boneset that have partial shade and moisture. But one of them can get VERY wet in heavy rain periods as it is where the water flows through our property on down hill to the creek (about quarter mile ) but in dry weather it can get very dry although digging down you will hit water at about 18 to 24 inches. The other place is on a high spot that is between two water run off areas with very sandy soils (actually sand almost) and during dry periods I would need to supplement water due to the sandy nature of the soil. I really want boneset in my homestead and I can’t find it naturally occurring. Should I grow this in a pot if it’s possible??

      hi cynthia, sounds like you could plant your boneset in the wet area. We grow it here as a standard garden plant, with weekly water, weeding, etc. It can indeed be grown in a pot. I don’t think it will do well in sand. It likes soil. The seed came originally from a meadow in Kentucky. richo
