Elecampane (photo) cultivation in the garden, sowing and application
HOW TO GROW ELEVANE DIRECTLY IN THE GARDEN
It is good that people began to talk more and more about medicinal plants that any summer resident can have on their site without putting much effort into it. After all, they require a minimum of time for care, and they bring enormous benefits.
If you see fit, I suggest you publish my article. Perhaps it will be of interest not only to the addressee, although the time of the article by T.N. Ezhova from the Rostov region has already gone through a lot. Nevertheless, the topic has not lost its relevance.
Dear Tamara Nikolaevna! You write that you love elecampane and would like to have it in your garden. Unfortunately, you did not indicate which elecampane you are interested in, because there are about 30 species of them in Russia alone.
If you need it to decorate the garden, then it is better to plant oriental elecampane. This is a beautiful shrub with yellow flowers similar to daisies. Not curative. If you need a healing plant, you should plant high perennial elecampane. But it will not become a decoration of the garden, because it looks like Jerusalem artichoke, only with large lower leaves.
Seeds of elecampane do not germinate. Since they look like dandelion seeds, in late August - early September they scatter around the district under the influence of the wind and sprout by self-sowing wherever they want. True, they do not ripen every year. If August turns out to be rainy, they ripen already in flower baskets.
I sometimes sow the seeds of elecampane right in the snow or under the snow - it sprouts perfectly. And elecampane vegetatively reproduces only in spring. You can either divide large bushes, or transplant those plants that have sprouted by self-sowing. For example, elecampane high transfer in the spring tolerates remarkably.
This is a perennial plant. For medicinal purposes, roots with rhizomes are taken after the flowering of the bush, when they have the most accumulated medicinal components. The bush blooms most often
If the seeds of elecampane fell on fertilized, rich soil, they will already in the first year give a huge bush with powerful leaves, covering an area of \u1b\u2babout XNUMX sq. m. In the second year, he will throw out a powerful peduncle as thick as a wrist and more than XNUMX m high. If the seeds are rooted in waste land, somewhere on a path or near a fence, then in the first year the plant will be rather frail, with leaves similar to whether on foxglove, or on rudbeckia. And this plant will bloom only on the third goy, and the rhizome will not be too large.

The roots are dug in the fall, as late as possible. On the day of digging, they must be thoroughly washed, chopped smaller with a hatchet, rinsed again and, under running water, scrape each piece from all sides, like a carrot. Cut into smaller pieces with secateurs and place in the oven to dry on the smallest fire with the door open. On the second day, dry completely and pour into glass jars under the lid for storage - but not more than three years. If the dug roots are left until the next day, they immediately begin to rot and stink, even if they are kept in the refrigerator, especially in a plastic bag.
I brew high elecampane roots, like dandelion roots. They have a specific smell, but I like it.
This plant is incredibly useful! No wonder it is called "nine forces."
The broth strongly tones, so you can drink it from morning until 17 o'clock, no later than, otherwise sleep will run away from you. If it is abused, it will raise the pressure. I am personally hypotensive, so I have been using elecampane for several years. Once, after the flu, complicated by bronchitis, I was completely useless - I didn’t have enough strength, I walked along the wall, which could not last long, because I have two gardens. A friend reminded me that I should drink elecampane. I followed her advice and within two weeks I was working for two!
The plant is unpretentious, rises on any inconvenience. One day it rained for half of the summer, a lot of things died in the garden. Only elecampane and tradescantia survived, although they were knee-deep in water.
This plant can bring a lot of benefits to the body. Apply elecampane in diseases of the respiratory tract, cough, gastritis, diseases of the liver and gallbladder. His art
used for hemorrhoids, irregular menstruation, rheumatism and diabetes. A decoction of the root is drunk for diseases of the kidneys, bladder, urolithiasis, dropsy. It acts as an analgesic for diseases of the joints - rheumatism, gout, arthritis, inflammation of the sciatic nerve, lumbago.
The plant also has tonic properties that improve the condition of the body, it is used for headaches, dizziness, pain in the heart, hypertension. In the treatment of rheumatism, elecampane root is used mixed with burdock root. Elecampane is used not only by traditional medicine: tablets are made from it - alan-tolactone and alanton.
As the saying goes, you don't have to go to the doctor. However, like any medicine, elecampane root has contraindications: serious diseases of the cardiovascular system, various kidney pathologies, atherosclerosis and pregnancy. So you will have to consult with your doctor.
Good health and success in your garden!
For beauty and for the soul, I grow cannes, lilies, delphiniums, chrysanthemums and other flowers, which I wish you too.
Tea with elecampane eliminates headaches, relieves joint pain, strengthens the immune system. 1 tsp pour dry raw materials with boiling water, insist 10 minutes. You can add other herbs, such as St. John's wort, thyme and mint, as well as blueberries, rose hips, hawthorn or raspberries to enhance the effect. Honey will remove the bitterness of the drink.
