    I’m very satisfied with my order. It was packed properly. Received healthy, not demaged and vibrant plant. I ordered also St. John’s Wort seeds. I’ll make infused oil from it like my grandma used to do for skin burns, sores and pain relief.

      Two questions: are the berries edible? Secondly, could this grow happily in a large container? We don’t want (or have room) for much spread. Thank you!

      Hi Wendy, The saint johns wort doesn’t make berries and is a medicinal plant, not a food plant. YEs, you can put them in pots. A sandy soil in outdoor conditions is helpful. Richo

    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.

      Hi Jill, good question. They were planted last year and fulfilled a certain amount of their need to crawl, so some of the larger ones might flower this year. I would expect most of them to create a rich foundation of herbage this year and flower around June 24 of the second year *(St. John’s Day). richo

      I transplanted my St John’s Wort spring of 2019. I thought it would bloom this year but it hasn’t. It has really spread and now covers a 3′ x3′ area. The plant is super healthy. How do I get it to bloom next year?

      Hi Denise, As you know the plant has two growth phases–creeping and then upright. If it hasn’t gone upright yet, then it has more time to make a good foundation, and will very likely be extraordinary when it flowers. Our SJW is in full bloom here right now so my guess is that your plant might not flower until next year. The plant requires little in terms of nutrients and water, besides what nature has to give.
