Feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium)
A pretty and practical Herb: Feverfew is great for repelling mosquitoes and other flying biting insects - ideal for planting around outdoor seating areas and pathways.
Feverfew is a good companion plant enhancing the growth of plants around it. Feverfew contains pyrethrin, a natural insect repellent. A weak infusion controls whitefly and spider mites.
Tanacetum parthenium, known as Green Feverfew is actually a species of chrysanthemum that has been grown in herb and medicinal gardens for centuries.
Pretty daisy-like flowers on a mid-sized 20 inch bush make Feverfew a garden favorite. The white petals with yellow centers, accent the green serrated citrus scented leaves of this short-lived, bushy perennial (to -5F); often grown as an annual or biennial in sun and a well-drained soil bed.
Costmary Tanacetum Balsamita
Rub the leaf on your bug bite - very soothing! Also known as Alecost, as it was once an important flavoring of ales.
Also known as Bible Leaf, because of its large oblong leaves which make neat, fragrant bookmarks and something to secretly smell and chew on during long sermons.
Also known as Bee Balm or Oswego Tea
Native to North America, these plants were grown from organic, native species seed at Buck Mountain Herbs. This will grow 3-4 ft and bear aromatic lavender blossoms highly attractive to pollinators, especially bees. Bergamot is a great addition to the perennial border, in light, alkaline soil.
Leaves impart a pungent aroma to teas, potpourri, meats and beans.
Buck Mountain Herbs also offers dried products including culinary salts, dried herb seasonings and teas. These are available at local farm markets.
