    Over the years, on my four acres, I learned to grow medicinal herbs. Here is how it was. Once, when I arrived at the dacha, I found that coltsfoot flowers appeared on the site, which had not been there before. And then it dawned on me: why do I buy all sorts of dried herbs in a pharmacy, when here they are - literally under my feet!

    Gradually planted medicinal chamomile, St. John's wort, lycopodium, chicory. They take root perfectly if they are moved with a clod of earth from the place where they grew.
    Of course, if everything is left to chance, such beds will turn into a wild field. Therefore, I dig out the roots of plants that are too prolific, leaving one or two for the next year. She made an exception only for thyme (thyme): she spied that in nature it grows in open areas along the paths.

    And the last. I dry the collected medicinal herbs in the shade, store them in paper bags and use them throughout the winter. Add thyme or St. John's wort to tea - an indescribable aroma will immediately remind you of summer!

    Recently we were at abandoned dachas, near a pine forest. They collected a whole bucket of oil along its edges. There, on the slope, she collected immortelle seeds, later scattering them in the front garden, and a few more flowers - she prepared a vodka tincture.
    So the pharmacy garden is slowly gaining. Chamomile, clover, yarrow, large plantain, mountaineer, celandine, calendula, echinacea, mint, lemongrass, chicory are dried in summer, and in winter I drink tea from these herbs.

    When we go to a field or forest, I will definitely pick up something - either flowers or leaves. In the garden I collected leaves of mountain ash, viburnum, grapes, cherries, raspberries, black currants. Tea from them especially helps during a cold - I brew in a two-liter saucepan, leave for two or three hours and drink instead of water, adding honey, then crumpled berries of viburnum, sea buckthorn or barberry. I brew twice, the next morning I prepare a new broth, and the waste goes to the chickens in the mash.

    Just recently I heard that the field bindweed is a very useful plant? What diseases does it cure?

    • OOO "Sad"

      Field bindweed is used to treat dermatitis, diseases of the female reproductive organs, bronchitis and pneumonia.

      All parts of the field bindweed have a healing effect. The stem and leaves contain vitamin E, saponins, resinous compounds and substances that increase blood clotting. The seeds contain alkaloids and fatty oils. The flowers contain resins, the roots contain a lot of tannins, as well as compounds that stimulate the peripheral nervous system.

    I’ll tell you about my pharmacy garden. I chose a lit place for him, where my husband Andrei Alexandrovich made frames for raised beds from plastic scraps (see photo).

    There I removed the upper fertile layer, sifted, picked weeds, added humus, sand and rotted sawdust (5: 1: 2: 1), mixed everything and put it back into the boxes.
    The soil should not be too fertile, since spicy herbs are considered Spartans in the plant world.
    The first to spread melissa, St. John's wort and oregano, which she brought from a walk, digging a few roots on the banks of the Don. And in winter I bought Vosnesensky-24 clary sage seeds and Taste of mushrooms, lemon balm Lemon flavor and Chill, garden mint (Menthol and Kuban) and pepper, thyme Honey flavor, hyssop and motherwort. Seeds followed by their two cultures were sown in March for seedlings and in May transplanted into the garden. And in the first ten days of April, I spread the rest of the seed directly on the surface of the bed (the snow has already melted all over), spraying it from the sprayer and covering it with a non-woven fabric, and then with a packaging multilayer film with bubbles, which retains excellent heat (I have been using it for greenhouses for a long time) )
    Further care was reduced to weeding, infrequent watering and loosening of row spacing. When the plants got stronger, thinned planting, replanting extra sprouts in the garden.
