CULTIVATION OF MEDICINAL HERBS IN YOUR GARDEN - TIPS AND REVIEWS ON APPLICATION.
I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE THE EXPERIENCE OF CULTIVATION OF SOME MEDICINAL PLANTS IN MY GARDEN.
This year I have planted thyme, hyssop, tarragon (tarragon) and lavender (Yuzhanka variety). All herbs were grown through seedlings sown in March. There were no problems: everyone got up together and settled down well after transplanting to a permanent place.
But last year I was very surprised by St. John's wort, which was also planted with seeds in boxes: the seeds sprouted well, grew a centimeter and ... froze. So the sprouts sat for a whole month, not reacting in any way to my feeding. Having decided to open them, I was extremely surprised: with the height of the aboveground part of 1 cm, the roots of the plants reached a length of 8-10 cm and were strongly intertwined!
That is why St. John's wort did not grow - the roots were cramped. My advice to those who want to grow it from seeds: plant in "snails".
I will not write about thyme, as there have already been articles about it. I just want to add that thyme tea is amazing.
I became friends with hyssop four years ago, when after a severe cold in winter I could not get rid of a lingering cough for a long time. For a week I drank a decoction of hyssop, and the cough went away.
Well, my grandchildren pushed me to tarragon, who like to buy a green lemonade called "Tarhun" in the store. I decided that I myself would cook this
drink, but there it was. They did not like mine for two reasons: firstly, the color is not as bright as that of the store, and secondly, there is a subtle bitterness, like wormwood: apparently, tarragon is a relative of wormwood, they even have similar leaves.
A little more about it. Tarragon is a perennial spicy plant with a height of 50-60 cm, although the annotation indicates a height of 1 m.Perhaps it will grow up to a meter next year. The culture is cold-resistant, in one place it can grow up to 10 years. D Tarragon has unique medicinal properties, has long been used as a spice in cooking.
I would like to list some useful properties of tarragon for those summer residents who do not have access to the Internet: it has antimicrobial and antioxidant properties (slows down the aging process), contains carotene, vitamin C and other trace elements. Lowers blood pressure (therefore contraindicated for hypotensive patients), strengthens the immune system, accelerates metabolism (which is especially important for older children), has a slight diuretic effect and improves the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract.
I would like to remind the proverb: "Sometimes poison is a medicine, sometimes an abundance of medicine is poison." Therefore, you should not abuse tarragon, as well as completely abandon it.
I prepare the infusion as follows: pour three or four branches with boiling water (0,5 l), adding honey or sugar to taste.
Let me remind you that at a temperature of 60-70 °, honey loses all its beneficial properties.
When the broth cools down, filter and take 3-4 tbsp. l. three times per day. I store it in the refrigerator. The result is a very tasty drink with a pleasant aroma. The bitterness disappears after storage in the refrigerator.
All the plants listed in my letter are perennials, which is another advantage: you do not need to re-sow every year. She planted spicy herbs under apple trees to scare off pests with their smells, but lavender will have to be transplanted, because the fruits falling from the tree break the flower stalks.
After I watched a video on the Web about tea that we buy in a store, all the desire to drink it disappeared. They bring him to us from more than 20 countries, even from Africa, where he is repeatedly processed with chemicals.
Therefore, dear summer residents, herbal teas from your garden are safer and healthier than purchased ones.
From the editor. Tarragon really belongs to the genus wormwood, it is even officially called tarragon wormwood (other names are dragon grass, tarragon). It is widely used in cooking, winemaking, cosmetology and medicine. The popular refreshing drink is made with plant extract.
