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.
Buck Mountain Herbs also offers dried products including culinary salts, dried herb seasonings and teas. These are available at local farm markets.
I am excited to have a new greenhouse for the 2018 season! This year I plan to focus on growing the herb plants and landscaping the newly graded area around the greenhouse. Dried products will be limited this year and offered at the Cornwall Co-op Farm Market in the fall.
