Hyssopus officinalis

Hyssop Herb Seeds

 

Seed packet is 1/4 gram or about 200 seeds.


Hyssops makes a delightful 2' hedge producing dark blue flower spikes that are sure to attract any self-respecting butterfly, hummingbird or bee! 

The foliage is dark green and slightly bitter lending to salads, soups and stews.  

Sometimes used to flavor beer or wine.

 

Medicinally, hyssop has been used as an expectorant.  It is said to be mildly anti-viral and is sometimes used for the common cold.  Tea can be made for sore throats.

Sow hyssop seeds indoors or directly in the garden about 8 weeks before the last frost. Plant hyssop just beneath the soil’s surface or about a 1/8 inch deep. Hyssop seeds usually take between 14-21 days to germinate and can be transplanted to the garden after the threat of frost has ended in spring. Space hyssop plants about 12 inches apart.

Herbal Lemonade Boil 2 cups of water and pour over a 2" sprig of rosemary OR 1 heaping tablespoon of lavender flowers. Steep for 5-8 minutes and then remove herbs. Add 1/3 c. sugar or honey and stir to dissolve. Pour into a 1 quart jar and add 1/4 c. lemon juice. Fill the rest of the way with cold water. Chill and taste, adjusting lemon and sweetness to taste. Serve over ice, with a small fresh sprig of rosemary or lavender if you like.
