Magic Garden Seeds


The white, unmistakable blossoms (or rather flower heads, as they are not true blossoms but special forms of inflorescences) of the alpine edelweiß are certainly one of the most emblematic plant symbols in Europe, and its reputation has been equally
promoted by romantic nature poetry and kitschy movies. As a wild plant, it has become enormously rare due to its popularity and wild picking by alpine tourism. It has been put on the red list of endangered species as one of the first plants in Germany, and collecting it is strictly prohibited.

Therefore, if you want to make use of the curative effects of the Edelweiß, which can be used to relieve stomach pains, you must grow it yourself. Larger cultures are found, for example, in Switzerland, where it is used as an ingredient in herbal schnapps and liqueurs. It is a good plant for rockeries and attracts many different insects with its fragrance.

Content approx. 350 alpine Edelweiß seeds

Sowing & Cultivation

The seeds need cold to germinate, therefore either sow in autumn or stratify in spring. Store in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks in a plastic bag to start gemination. Plant out young plants in March or April after the last night frosts. The frost-tolerant mature Edelweiß grows naturally in crevices on limestone, where there is hardly any nutrient-rich soil to be found, therefore it is very suitable for planting in stone gardens and rockeries in permeable, calcareous and nutrient-poor soil in a dry and sunny location. Requires very little water and tolerates moisture badly, especially waterlogging.
