Queen of the Meadow

Very hard to find seed, very useful herb.

Aspirin is a synthetic version of meadowsweet's pain-relieving anti-inflammatory compounds

Unlike aspirin, meadowsweet de-acidifies the system and soothes the stomach.

The lobed and frilled leaves and clusters of creamy flowers are both sweetly scented and were used for strewing on floors to perfume the room with a scent like honey and almonds.
A sacred herb of the Druids, used to flavor mead. Makes a great tea or cordial. Easy to grow in moist soil, but seed doesn't stay fresh long; plant soon.

BOTANICAL NAME: Filipendula ulmaria

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS:

Plant as soon as possible. Needs 3 months moist cold to break dormancy. Fill a pot with starting mix, tamp well, and press seeds into the surface (needs light). May cover with a bit of perlite. Leaves where temperatures range from 15-45 degrees (outdoors, an unheated room, or the fridge). Keep moist by setting pot in a saucer of water. Will sprout as soil warms. In cool-summer areas, grow in full sun. In hot summer areas, give afternoon shade. Harvest flowering tops.
