Chickweed, Common (Stellaria media) seeds, organic
Family: Pink (Caryophyllaceae)
Annual or overwintering annual. 60 days to maturity
Spreading groundcover native to all temperate zones, as far north as the Arctic. Succulent, green leaves dotted upon maturity with white flowers. Traditional usage (TWM): Spring tonic, digestive, weight loss, salve ingredient. Source of vitamins, flavonoids, and saponins. Harvest fresh for a wholesome, succulent and tasty salad green. Plant prefers soils that were heavily manured or composted the previous growing season and have now mellowed into aged compost. Try sowing it in the spot where that monumental zuchini died back. Sow in fall or spring. Mix small seed with sand to stretch it, strew seed on surface, press in, and keep moist until germination. Grows best in cool soils. In Zone 7 and up, the plant may grow large enough to be harvested even in midwinter.

Naomi (verified owner) –
I wanted to increase the forage plants for my poultry. I felt sheepish buying “weed” seeds, but the naturally existing plants weren’t enough to keep up with my birds’ appetites.
I especially like to use it when brooding chicks, but didn’t even have any I could scrounge up the last time and barely found anything the time before!
I do not regret buying this chickweed! Much thicker, lusher growth than the naturally occurring chickweed on my property. The flowers are nicer too. I’m hoping cross-pollination will occur to improve the overall vigor in the chickweed on my property. Thanks for your hard work preserving and improving medicinal plants!
