Valerian, Homestash (Valeriana officinalis), potted plant, organic

(4 customer reviews)

$8.50

Family: Valerian (Valerianaceae)

Hardy to Zones 4 to 8.

Homestash is our original valerian cultivar that we have been growing for 30 years on our farm.  The seed is from our own production.  Homestash is highly root productive in season, and the activity is very dependable.  The original stock came from:  England.  Herbaceous perennial native to Europe and temperate Asia.  Traditional usage (TWM): sedative.  Valerian prefers full sun to part shade and moist but well-drained soils.  I have seen excellent clumps form, during a wet spring, on the peak of a pile of ground pumice.  However, regular garden soil amended with organic compost will do nicely.  The plant adapts rather well to a wide range of conditions. Space plants 1 to 2 feet apart.  Flowers white in the second year to a height of 5 feet or more.

    Just got this as a started plant last year– grew like crazy and flowered (twice) the first season. Lovely white flowers with a lovely fragrance. I’m getting more!

    Valerian arrived well packed and happy.

    I ordered and received 3 Valerian plants. They were vibrant (but I could tell that winter is coming to Oregon). I planted them in gallon pots, as per the instructions and put them in my grow tent. They are growing like crazy and I will move them to my garden in North Idaho in May. Very happy with the quality of the plants and the way they were packed. I love ordering plants, roots and seeds from you. Thank you so much.

    Question

    SIMONE KEREIT-Gomez

    How old are these plants? The description mentions blooms in its second year, would these bloom this summer or only next?

      Hi simone,
      Thanks, that’s a fair question. The homestash valerian were started last year, and given good garden conditions should flower this year. I can’t guarantee it will always be like that, but right now in spring 2023 that’s what we’re selling–plants that have wintered over outdoors in pots. That’s the way we like to do it. Richo

  4. Question

    Marianne

    Can these be planted outside in late September in Massachusetts? I noticed that was the shipping time for plants so that would be my question for the others such as Geraniums as well. Thank you.

      hi marianne, growers handle fall transplants differently depending on zone and facilities at hand. warmer zones 6 and up generally transplant outdoors better in the fall because they have time to dig in. colder zones 5 and under should rely on the greenhouse, or wait for spring sales, some of these things will still be in stock then. geraniums are tender to the cold. r

      hi gwen, it can be grown in a pot and will do pretty well. also we have rocky soil here and find most herbs do pretty well in it, some actually prefer it. compost is the cure for clay. cheers! r

  9. Question

    Justin (verified owner)

    I ordered one a couple years ago, and absolutely loved it. Early the following spring, something else absolutely loved it as well, and ate every part of it. Do you think it was a deer or a smaller critter?

      Hi Justin, That’s really the way of it, a great plant can be gone in a minute. Oftentimes what happens is that the plant is in rich soil (not only because it was rich when you planted it, but because the plant itself enriches the soil) and earthworms are attracted, and then a large burrowing rodent (mole) goes after the worms and the plant is collaterally damaged. Or, if you find an animal thereabouts in deep and uninterruptable slumber, then that would be your culprit. Richo
