Sowing and Growing

Like many herbs, you can choose to start feverfew indoors during late winter or directly sow in April. Seeds benefit from a cold period before germination which can take up to 2 weeks. Best in full sun with regular water, feverfew is vigorous and self-seeds readily—popping up here and there around the herb garden. Trim back after flowering for a tidier look.


To harvest feverfew, pick leaves and flowers anytime or hang bundles in a cool, dark place for use in the off season. Leave at least 4” of stem so feverfew can continue to grow back healthy. Create a tea with other dried herbs. The tiny numerous blooms also attract beneficial pollinators, so consider allowing a few plants to remain in bloom rather than harvesting.
