The quick and convenient guide to growing your very own Mugwort Plant!
Mugwort is a herbaceous perennial with many medicinal qualities. Mugwort is a vigorous spreader and self seeder, so if it is going in your garden, make sure to keep it controlled. Mugwort seeds will achieve their best germination if they are first stratified for two weeks before planting. This involves chilling the seeds prior to planting, or wait to plant the seeds until late fall. Mugwort is tolerant to many different soil types.
How to Grow Mugwort from Seed
# 1 | Mix your mugwort seeds with dampened peat moss, and place in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks.

# 3 | Your mugwort seeds will germinate in 28-90 days.
# 4 | Mugwort grows by root spreading and can spread fast, so determine where you wish the plant to grow, and prune or remove roots as needed.
