Artemisia annua seeds for seed.
A plant native to Asia, the benefits of annual mugwort are very numerous. Mugwort has many benefits. Powerful antioxidant, it is rich in trace elements (potassium, calcium, zinc, magnesium, sulphur, iodine, phosphorus). Its field of action is very wide.
In gardens, this decorative plant is perfectly adapted to form annual hedges and produce green foliage to fill out bouquets. To sow from the end of winter until the beginning of summer outdoors, mugwort can grow up to 2m, it likes the sun and dry ground promotes the formation of active ingredients.
Sow in trays, under a light shelter. Do not cover seeds that germinate in the light. Keep the seedling moist with a spray bottle. When possible, transplant the plants in individual pots, then in the ground when they have 5 to 6 leaves. The distance between plants should be 60 cm to 1 m. Seed germination can take a few days to several weeks.
The plant has a remarkable development, and therefore the culture quickly covers the ground. However, 1 or 2 mechanical weedings (strawberry between the rows - weeder on the row - no herbicide) may be necessary in the first weeks.
The plant supports a relative dryness, even if it reacts well to a water supply. It is especially at the planting that a little water supply is necessary.
Mugwort annual does not require special care. Prune the plant after flowering to prevent it from taking over the whole garden. Try to contain it in a limited space, by cutting with a spade the rhizomes which tend to want to gain ground. It can show itself in certain grounds, invasive, not only by its seeds but also by its rhizomes.
The harvest takes place about 3 months after planting, but at the latest when the buds form. The foliage is picked from spring until the start of flowering. For cooking, only the leaves are harvested, for medicinal use, the flowering stems are also taken. Mugwort intended for infusions is dried in the shade and in the heat. When the leaves are completely dry, store them in a tightly closed container.
