  1. Question

    carolyn herz

    can I put this plant in as late as October here in Vermont (zone 4)–enough time to get established? ditto Angelica, which I’d also like to order. finally, I am going to order oregano syrianum next year as a plant (not hardy here) but was wondering if you think I could grow it indoors, since it likes hot and dry. thank you.

      Vermont is pretty cold for fall planting of perennials or biennials–you might do better waiting until spring. Angelica is, however, extremely cold-hardy, and so you could set it in the fall, and then it would mature more reliably next spring. Zaatar is a Mediterranean plant–it will appreciate at least 12 hours of full sun per day and would suffer indoors. richo

    Would you recommend fall planting in zone 7a/b? Our first frost is around mid-October. Thank you!

      Hi there, yes, you’re in a good zone for planting SJW anytime now. What usually happens is the plants drop their seed late in the year and it starts growing soon thereafter. The plant usually repines the first year and goes up to flowers midsummer of the second year.

    Excellent

    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

      How big is the plant when you order potted plant? Would I be able to harvest this year? If I planted seeds this year would it be next year before harvest?

      Hello Natashia,
      Our potted plants are pretty nice and in adequately sized pots, not plugs–they spread in the first year you know, and in the second year go up to flower. So you have it right–planting our potted plants now would be likely to give you a harvest this year and planting seeds now would be likely to give you a harvest next year.

    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.
