Non-GMO mugwort seeds grow a vigorous cool-season garden favorite with a weed-like hardiness best if sown directly either in spring or late fall. Open-pollinated mugwort seeds are traditionally cold stratified (“refrigerated”) 2-4 weeks prior to sowing to accelerate germination, mimicking winter garden conditions. Lightly press without covering 3-4 mugwort seeds per hole 10-12” apart in fertile, well-drained garden soil in full sun to partial shade. Non-GMO mugwort seeds germinate in 7-21 days, thin back every 24” in the garden.

Artemisia vulgaris is a hardy open-pollinated heirloom that has often been overshadowed by its more popular and controversial cousin Artemisia absinthium, or more commonly known as absinthe or wormwood. There are about a dozen cultivars of mugwort, with each being naturalized to different countries and their respective climates. Heirloom mugwort has traditionally been grown in the garden for its herbal and medicinal properties, experiencing a renaissance as an essential tea.
