Family: Saint John’s Wort (Hypericaceae)
Hardy to Zones 3 to 7
(St. John’s Wort) Herbaceous perennial with worldwide distribution. We love this herb that volunteers so selflessly for the betterment of all. Traditional usage (TWM): restore damaged nerve tissue, strengthens urinary organs, antidepressant. Plant prefers dry to mesic, poor or quickly draining soils, full sun. Light dependent germinator. Sow in spring. Use very sandy soil mix, press seed firmly into surface and keep evenly moist and in the light until germ, which takes about 5 days. Transplant or thin to 3 to 4 feet apart. Flowers yellow to 3 to 4 feet. Many growers have had questions about this herb because it looks a bit like 2 different herbs depending on the season. First year it creeps and crawls, and second year it sends up multiple stiff stems that flower yellow in midsummer.

Planted Spring 2020, excellent germination, grew enough to establish despite hot summer. Harvesting sunny yellow little blossoms this Spring for tincture and leaving some for wild bees who love them too.

I suppose I’m a bit of a pessimist (maybe this herb could help?) so I planted a few hundred of these little seeds in the hopes that I might get some plants. A few hundred seedlings later I’m starting to think I needn’t be so concerned!

My St Johns Wort will be in it’s third year in my garden. It is thriving with little to no special attention. I have found that I need a lot more flowers for my oil. I can’t keep it in stock! I love finding my seeds and plants from Strictly Medicinal. I know I can count on high quality. Thank you!
