(Stachys betonica) This perennial herb was highly prized in the middle ages for its medicinal properties, and even an old Italian proverb says “sell your coat and buy Betony”. It is still found growing around ancient physic gardens and monasteries where it was traditionally used to treat arthritis and gout. Modern herbalists say its astringency and mild bitterness have made it a valued wound and digestive remedy, but that it shines in its use in treating tension and pain--including migraines. The entire plant is harvested on a July morning after the dew has evaporated, and the plant then dried and used to make tea.

What are the pros? Lots of seeds!

What are the cons? Very small seeds - hard to see

Review:

Very generous portion of seeds. There were supposed to be about 100 seeds in this packet. I stopped after planting 268, and there were still more! I cold stratified mine in damp, sterilized seed starting mix, but would probably recommend a damp paper towel or other light-colored medium. It is very hard to see the seeds since they’re brown and smaller than a flax seed. I just planted them today so cannot report on results, but I was pleased that none of them sprouted too early while in the fridge.
