Betonica officinalis (Betony) [20 Seeds]
Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-starters only, because germination may be slow and irregular. The easiest approach is to surface-sow (do not cover) the seeds in a pot in fall to late winter, setting them outdoors in a spot protected from mice so they can get a chilling period and then germinate when conditions are right in spring.
If you sow after February, set the pot in a plastic bag in your refrigerator for about a month before moving it to a bright place indoors or outdoors for germination. (Remove the bag if the pot will be exposed to any direct sun.)
Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

Betony (Betonica officinalis, formerly Stachys officinalis) produces dense basal clumps of scalloped, deep green leaves. Upright, 18- to 24-inch-tall stems are topped with spikes of flowers in shades of purplish pink in early to midsummer. If you aren’t planning to collect seed, I suggest shearing the whole plant to about 1 inch above the ground once the flowers are finished; the plants will then produce a tidy mound of fresh leaves that look good through the rest of the growing season. Full sun to light shade. Perennial; Zones 4 to 8.
Harvested in August 2020. At least 20 seeds.
