Plantain

English Plantain (Plantago lanceolata). Legendary herb used for centuries, many benefits having been ascribed to this plant. The leaves sometimes cooked for greens. Plants form a low rosette of leaves,10-20” in diameter. In time a bare, tall flower-stem emerges from the crown, reminiscent in a way of tiny cattails. Some small birds relish the seeds in season, and the plant hosts several species of moths. This common plant has naturalized widely but we offer an improved strain.

Review:

This and the Broadleaf (P. major) are my most beloved and commonly used medicinal plants. Not only is it very strongly anti-microbial, it is also a Vulnerary, meaning it speeds up the healing process greatly! With these marvelous plants, I very effectively treat everything from small cuts, lacerations, abrasions, burns, bacterial/viral infections of the skin, and fungal infections (internal and external). I live in jungle which is by its very nature teeming with life, including all manner of pathogens. Also great used the same on chickens, guinea fowl, dogs. They also seek it out to eat when they have internal issues that the Plantago can help. I tear my hands up constantly, and any time I want to prevent or stymie an already existing infection I go straight to these. No infection ever takes hold. Its amazing and I don't understand why more don't sing the Plantago's praises! To use it, mash to a pulp and make a poultice. Place on the site in need and wrap. Works best kept MOIST.

This is a pretty green plant in our high desert mountains and my honeybees really like it in late summer when other plants start to fade even thought the flowers are small.

Review:

I bought this based on Sej's review & that their dog had self-medicated on it. How awesome to provide herbs for your pet as well as yourself!! This is a very pretty plant. The leaves are easy to harvest & dry. I have started making skin salve with this, calendula & wild violet leaf. I was super pleased the 2nd year when it had re-seeded & multiple new plants came up.

Review:

Central Texas grower. I grew this for use in a wound balm but was disappointed to find that my dog had eaten it's leaves to the ground. It came back thankfully no matter how he munched it. Soon he stopped eating it and I found out he had gotten into rat poison (a discovery after "poopy patrol"). After checking on the internet, I found out that plantain is high in vitamin K and he was self medicating (He also went after the lovage). He's fine and the plant grew back healthier than ever. Now I keep this plant and several herbs out for the dogs to get at in case they need the greens or the medicine. It can take the abuse and I have better peace of mind knowing they have a recourse if they aren't feeling well. Can't recommend it enough!
