Self-Heal (Prunella vulgaris) potted plant, organic

$7.00$50.00

Family:  Mint (Lamiaceae)

Hardy to Zones 3 to 9

(Heal-All, Heart-of-the-Earth, Self Heal) Creeping herbaceous perennial, native to Europe.  In the garden or among the grasses on the lawn, a floral focal point or a surprising splash of color that gladdens the heart.  Traditional usage (TWM): astringent, analgesic, antiviral, open sores of the oral mucosa, herpes.  The flowers are most useful. Pick at full flowering glory and dry in the shade, then set aside for making tea.   The plant prefers full sun to shade and moist soils.  If you bump them up with organic compost, they can be highly florific and stunning, otherwise a small demure blinking blue eye in the grasses.  Sow seed in early spring or cold-condition in moist medium in the refrigerator (not the freezer) for a week or two before sowing in warm soil.  Really a very easy plant to start and to grow.  Flowers purple from 6 inches to 18 inches, depending on how much compost is used and how much competition is experienced from grasses.  Space plants 1 foot apart.

Potted Plant,  Certified Organically Grown

  1. Question

    Kim McBride

    I want to plant these Self-Heal pot plants indoor for now since the summer is over. I will have sufficient light and controlled humidity. I do not have organic compost so if you can point me to what kind of plant food suitable for this herb I would have enough good conditions. Do you think these pots would be doing well indoor? I am very grateful for your advice. I’ve been buying this herb for a long time but this week a friend told me that I can grow it here in California. I did some research for how to and happened to find you. If I can grow them indoor I will order twenty plants from you. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.

      Hi Kim,
      Self-heal is very forgiving and will probably grow well in the conditions described. Also, it is not a heavy user of nutrients so can be grown in standard potting soil. You can purchase something like “black gold” at your local nursery supply outlet.

    Received potted plants last year. They promptly bloomed until all tuckered out. This year I’m very happy with all the babies. I’ll be transferring them to a waiting iris bed soon. Very happy with purchase.
